Great rides in Western MA
There are lots of wonderful rides in the Berkshires and Pioneer Valley. Try riding to the summit of MA's highest peak, Mt. Greylock, at 3500 feet for a spectacular view. The road was redone a year ago and is in great shape. Access from N. Adams on Rte 2 just west of town. You will see a brown sign on the left. Or access from the Lanesboro side on Rte 7 just north of town with a brown sign on the right.
After entering N. Adams going west, about 3 miles or so after the hairpin turn you will see Rte 8 to your right. This merges with Rte 100 going north in Vermont. One of the most scenic roads in the country.
Try taking the turn toward Monroe at the Mohawk bridge when on Rte 2 in Charlemont and take a great ride through the Zoar Gap and into Vermont. You can stop and swim in the river, if it is hot enough, at a great picnic area on the right going north.
Blue skies, dry roads, keep the rubber on the road.
