Arouond Massachusetts, they've started replacing many of the old, unused railroad tracks with nicely paved bike trails. It's one of our favorite features of New England. Since most of the roads are simply too curvy and dangerous for novie riders, like us, the rails-to-trails program offers tremendous riding potential with minimal hazard.
Stopped off at Spy Pond. Why it's named Spy Pond, I have no idea.
