Take Rt 286 off RT 95 in Salisbury, MA to the "Beaches". Left onto 1A and follow 1A north all the way into Portsmouth, NH.
Starting at MA state line, 50% of this ride is directly on the waterfront. Nothing between you and the crashing waves! A classic northeastern coastal run.
After the first couple of miles of cottages and the Beach in Hampton, the road twists most of the way to Portsmouth. Smooth surface, my favorite road in all of New England!
It's a short road, with areas to stop view the ocean and Isle of Shoals. Seasonal places to eat. Everything you could need or want year round is within 15 mins inland of the road. At the far end is Portsmouth one of the best restaurant towns in New England. Overall, this is a very motorcycle friendly area. High concentration of resident bike owners ... a great place to ride!
