Ten miles north of New Bedford is a cluster of large, unspoiled lakes surrounded by woods, prosperous farms, and a few cranberry bogs. Lightly traveled roads threading among the lakes make this one of the nicest regions for biking in southeastern Massachusetts. You start off by going along the shore of Assawompset Pond, which, along with most of the other lakes in the area, supplies Taunton and New Bedford with water. Shortly you’ll weave between Great Quittacas and Little Quittacas Ponds, both surrounded by pine groves. On the south shore of Little Quittacas Pond is the graceful stone New Bedford Waterworks building; just ahead the lane carves through a perfectly groomed, symmetrical row of trees.

This is a lovely ride. The views of water and forest are beautiful; the traffic is quite light (NB: I went around 7pm). It's possible to alternate the length of the ride by taking either the smaller or larger loop. The grade of the ride is easy; this is a good tourist/scenic ride. Recommended for families due to the light traffic and regularly nice views.
