Written Directions

- Start your ride in Wayland, MA. - Take Rt 27 south, from Wayland, through Walpole, Sharon, and into Stoughton. Keep your eyes peeled for signs, because the route takes some unobvious turns in Sharon and Stoughton. - In Stoughton Center, turn south on Rt 138, and about 5 miles down the road, take a left onto RT 106 East. - Rt 106 will run into Rt 18/28S at which point you want to turn right (heading south). - To go directly to Plymouth, get off at Rt 44 East, and drive into Plymouth. - *** Note, if you want to continue on a scenic ride, instead of turning east on Rt 44, just stay on Rt18 South, even after 28 splits off. Follow this Route onto Rt105S, and it's a gorgeous ride through some lakes in Lakeville and Long Plain. This is a designated scenic route. From there, head Rt 6 East to 3A North, into Plymouth, along some really pretty shore scenes. In summer, Route 6 will be congested, especially in Bourne, and Sagamore.

Scenery

Beautiful small towns, lakes and the shoreline. Plymouth is a great destination for eating, shopping, and historical sightseeing.

Road Quality

This route skirts Brockton, which is horrible for driving, and most of the road quality is good. There will be congestion around RT 6 in the summer. There's an alternate Route that I describe below, which takes you from Marion up to Plymouth, but you miss the shore ride. You do, however, go through some nifty cranberry bogs.

Roadside Amenities

Don't worry about gas on this ride. Plymouth has lots of eating choices, as well as antiques, museums, Plimouth Plantation, and shops. Bikers head there in droves to show off their rides. To stop off at Dave Perewitz's cycle shop, follow these directions: after you pass Bridgewater State College on Rt 18/28, look for a left turn onto Plymouth Road. He's only a short ride from there. Call (508)697-3595 for shop hours. Say Hi to Susan, his lovely wife.

This is a decent ride,However, I would not suggest it be the first one when spring weather breaks in. Due to the extensive sanding along the south shore and especially rte.44. It could be dangerous for the experienced rider....

Hi kerri if you take 106 to 58 go right past rt44 about a mile or two you will see a sign on your left that says plymouth center tale left go to end then take a right this brings you right onto 44 all backs roads nice.Rt 44 is like a highway not as fun i live in Quincy its a different way to go.Happy biking ps 58 is a long road all the way down to rt 28 not many stops long and winding.
