What part of CT are you from? I hail from the Western Ma area, north of Springfield. I do however, have friends in Willimantic & Norwich That I visit semi regularly. This summer will be more often, as its an excuse to fill the tank & hit the road down RT 32!

Western CT here. I am always riding up in the NW hills and up into the Berkshires and eastern NY. I even ended up in southern VT one day just taking a ride to clear my head.

I love riding up the area around Goshen, Cornwall, Sharon and over into NY! Also along Rt 7 by the river and over the covered bridge is really nice, I just wish there were a spot to pull over and take some pictures by the bridge. My profile picture was taken in Sharon, CT.

Thanks, I never thought to turn down that road but I definitely will next time. I have always stayed on the main road and gone straight up the hill towards Goshen and Litchfield. Thanks again!

I grew up in Litchfield and remember family trips up to Cornwall and down that road with a Fried Chicken picnic basket and fishing poles . . . pulled some nice trout out of that river!

Great riding nw ct I ride there from long island ny up 7 to west cornwall and have breakfast at the wondering moose cafe just over covered bridge on 128 on sunday he dose eggs ben by 10:30 thats gone. If you stay east on 128 it takes you to 4 rt on 4 to 7 to Sharon. Lt on 4 to 63 Goshen to 8. All good roads but when you take the side, side, side roads and they into dirt roads and sometimes back to black top but not always thats the adventure. So any time you all try to meet up think of Ed Nomad 11 who if not so in love with his wife would have moved up in that area already. But after 30+ years old habits are hard to break and good partners are hard to come by.
