Welcome to the area. I have to tell you, 68 is a little rough in spots, but once you get to barre, take 122 to 202. If you follow 122 to 32A, that will take you around the Quabbin reservoir. 32A to Rt 9 in Ware MA, to Rt 202, back to 122... about a 35 - 40 mile ride through some great twisty back roads. Coming back from Ware/Belchertown on 202, you can turn off to Amherst and Northampton.
Those are some of the great roads in the area. The best place to stop on a saturday or sunday morning when the weather is nice is the Honey Farms gas station/dunkin donuts at the junction of Rt 2 and Rt 202 in Orange MA.
There are a group of regulars that hang out at this location. There are all sorts of bikes, from Harleys to Hondas and everything inbetween... customs and bone stock bikes. There is an elderly guy who stops in every once in a while on a Vincent Black Shadow!
Everyone in the area stops here during the course of a day to get a drink, use the bathroom or gas up for the next leg of a ride.
Keep the shiny side up....
