You should ride the roads in spring if you think the roads suck now. Its August and the temps got down to the 50s during the day. New England, especially northern New England can and does get some pretty severe weather throughout the year which plays havoc with the roads. Oh by the way, they weren't that bad

I don't think that it was that all the roads sucked, there were some good ones, but the ones that did suck, REALLY sucked. 16 and 25 down to Laconia were really decent. 16 and 17 that we took to Rangeley on Thursday were decent. We took 3 on the way out Friday morning and it was nice, as were most of our roads Friday. We found some in Ohio and Indiana that weren't wonderful, and then we got back home to Iowa and found more that REALLY sucked. I think we still win for the consistency of the suckage.
