These are a couple of stories about bicycling in the Berkshires, which is in western Massachusetts, nestled between the Appalachian and other mountain ranges. It's a beautiful area to bicycle, something I'm able to do when I return in the summer to visit family and friends.
The first story is about one of my favorite routes, from North Adams, through Adams, Cheshire, Lanesboro, and Williamstown. The second is about my 100+ mile MS ride in the early fall. It was a challenging ride on a course laid out by Tyler Hamilton, who is from Marblehead, Massachusetts.
