depends where you live.

rt 2 west as was said.

theres a LOT of good roads in Northern Ma, on the border of NH. I live in central MA, and have a good hour plus of nice backroads i hit, but theres a lot of them out there.

Hey Lynchy, what are some of your favorite rides close to metro Boston? I'm about to bring my bike up from lil' Rhody and was wondering what the quickest way to less built-up areas is...

Route 116 -> 8 -> 112 is probably one of, if not THE, best loops in MA. It's easy access from I-91 so you could jump on the pike and then go up 91 to start the loop. This is part of my ~4-5 hr loop on sundays out here in WMass. Route 116 is nice and scenic with twisties. Route 8 is a very technical twisty patch (especially the Northern part). Route 112 has huge high speed sweepers that are thoroughly enjoyable after the technical route 8.

Me and my buddies just cruzed down from boston to south eastern mass and then crossed over into RI where we road around New Port and all the rich mansions. Talk about some serious money, holy crap! I forget what towns we were in because I am not familiar with teh area. My buddy found the route in a book of all the best driving roads in north america.

Post up a few days before you head out. Maybe we can throw together a "meet and greet" for some of us N.E. guys
