Another Boston Suburb Road Bike Route

The after work, before dinner bike ride today followed a route I planned out last night, up through the center of the Fells, up and across Stoneham and Wakefield, down through Melrose and back into Malden along the east side of the Fells.

I'm trying to find something in the 15-20 mile range that is quick to get out on and and the route travels along roads that are in good condition, have some kind of shoulder, and don't have heavy traffic. This ride was pretty good for all three. It's not a ride in the countryside, there are a handful intersections to navigate, but overall the roads were wide enough to accommodate a cyclist and not so heavily travelled that it was stressful to be riding.

It was raining when I rode tonight, a very light misting/drizzle. By the time I got home it was a bit heavier, but not so much that I was nervous about road traction. Definitely got wet though, water dripping from the helmet and all.

Bookmarking this ride for later use...
