Four weeks to the day since I rented a car in East Brookfield, and drove to Watertown, I did the reverse trip today. I rented a car from the local Enterprise place yeaterday, put my bike in the trunk and was at the Emterprise/Ford dealership in East Brookfield by 9:00 am.
The weather was perfect for riding; mid 70s F and slightly overcast. I took a generally NW route that avoided Worcester and headed for Paxton, Boylston, Berlin and was in Hudson for lunch. There were some steep hills at first, but with healthy ribs they were fine.
After lunch I made for Concord so that I could come into Boston on the Minuteman Bike path rather than dealing with the traffic in Waltham
I rode over Rt 128 as the afternoon rush hour was just starting….man I’m glad that I don’t have to commute anymore.
A short time later I was back home and ready for the final day’s ride to the Atlantic.
