What to expect: Doing the Great Bay ride from Exeter creates a unique experience for those who have not done the 68 mile route from our Amesbury start earlier this month. From Exeter Center it becomes a beautiful 38 mile route. If you do the 46 mile route and return to Exeter it will only be about 17 miles. The 31 mile route will be 31 miles. The 25 mile route is not an option from Exeter. Of course you can do the 68 mile route all the way as well. The rides go through the scenic farm country of southern New Hampshire. The terrain is rolling hills with old barns, scenic vistas, and lots of quiet roads. All the loops go by historic Kingston NH common. Longer routes add picturesque Newfields, and the longest loop on its way around Great Bay hits Newmarket, and the lively college town of Durham.
