One of our friends asked about some interesting riding routes down in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire….
"something for a 50cc machine".
Developing trips is our forte, so here is a nice roughly 23-mile ride that will take our friend passed some wonderful buildings, "spooky" cemeteries, a few historic forts, and a great place to grab a "Maine" lunch – all the while riding on country lanes close to (if not right alongside) the ocean.
Jumping across two islands that lay at the junction of the Atlantic Ocean and the Piscataqua River, will get you to New Castle Island, home of the Town of New Castle, the only town in the state composed solely of islands. Immediately upon reaching the island you'll find Riverside Cemetery, a neat row of older stones nestled in amongst the new, sitting between the road and the sea.
A wandering ride through the ocean-scented streets, ends at Fort Stark, one of seven forts built to protect Portsmouth Harbor.
