Hey to everyone. I live near the junction of Rts 2 and 202 in the hills near Orange Ma. I work in the five-college area and ride all over greater western and parts of central mass more recently.

I will be finding myself in Leominster more often now, since I found its the midpoint between myself and a riding buddy of mine from NH. Found a decent Chinese Buffet about a mile off Exit 31A (past the McDonalds).


Great time to find out a bunch of you guys are in Western Mass... how many of you went to the Stearn's Square Summer Concerts?

I live in Belchertown, MA and ride Western MA, Southern VT and NH, and Northern CT . My longest New England trip has been home to Portland, ME via Rt 202; very pretty countryside! Beats the hell outta just trying not to get killed on 495.

Any of you have lunch at Curtis' in Putney? Pretty good BBQ and the ride up Rt 5 is nice.

Rev,

I was riding out to Northampton last Friday and had lunch at the 202 resturant. Decent food and we could park our bikes on the cement slab out back. I always like to be able to keep an eye on my bike while I eat.

Rob

Just ride

The 202... is Herrick's Tavern. You are talking about the one that has the ice cream stand out front and around the side you have the diner/bar area?

Kevin in the tall, skinny young looking guy that manages the place. GREAT guy and all home cooked food. Great for the money. And to get to northampton from there you went right past my street. On your way down 202, remember passing a little general store? I live in that area.

Watch out for moose deer and turkey along that road. There are also bike-lethal porcupines out here too. Ive seen more than one car with a flat after going over one. And they breed em huge out around the Quabbin. Turkey are moving around a lot now. There were about 20 of them in the middle of the road about 6 miles from Herricks. At the turn off to Shutesbury center (Prescott Road) on 202 is where Ive had 3 moose sightings.

If you come back out to Noho, let me know... If work allows, I will try to meet up.

You live ware, wahaha.
Ok my best friend's brother lives in Ware, and I have never partied with the 2 of them without, at some point, it turning into a stooges routine . and hows this for coincidence his sister lives in Southbridge, as he did when he was younger.
Some nice riding to be had in your neck of the woods

do you know how hard it is for me not to run through all the possible jokes I could make about Ware, I've had 20yrs of practice and had help

Still ride in the Southbridge area sometimes, not too much anymore since my friend moved to Franklin MA.
