(if you're super-ambitious, bear right from Montague Rd to Cave Hill - for a big hill and a REALLY COOL stop at the local Peace Pagoda) and basically to Montague and the Bookmill/Lady Killigrew for lunch. From there you could head to Millers Falls or Turners Falls... or loop south on Meadow Rd (best part of the route) or even across the river on River Rd.

The one I would stay away from in that area is 47 - lots of traffic and VERY windy last time I was on it.

Leverett has lots of scenic, unpaved roads.
I really want to take a ride out to the Montague bookmill next time I'm out that way. I remember that hill in Leverett going up to the Peace Pagoda. Don't think I could have ridden that when I was a college student. I'm sure I can't do it now.
