Welcome Edward
I grew up in MA, still have property there. Beautiful area to ride. Try the Mass Central rail trail if you have a gravel/mtb bike and live nearby one of the legs of the trail.
Take care,
Jesper

Welcome, ed7, welcome to the forum. Which part of MA do you live in? Unlike Jesper, I have a shorter connection to MA. I spent about 12 years in the Boston area and rode with the Charles River Wheelers, then on my own. I loved the Mass Central Rail Trail that Jesper recommends. Even the Air Line State Park Trail in CT is beautiful. A couple of times I rode to NH via the Nashua Rail Trail and then VT. Quite a few Warmshower hosts there and in CT. So, a great way to ride beyond MA..:-)

Attached are links to the Air Line and Nashua Rail Trail. The picture is of my bike on the Air Line Trail..

Enjoy and ride safely.
