Home to many accomplished Massachusetts cyclists, Foxboro and the surrounding towns offer many enjoyable, cycling-friendly roads. Don’t be surprised to see other cyclists along the route, particularly if you head out on a weekend morning, as there are many active clubs in the area. You may even catch a glimpse of professional racer Mark Mc Cormack or other well-known local cyclists Tobi Shultze and Mike Fairhurst along the wooded, winding roads of the Foxboro Ramble. On this ride you will explore the rural, lake-dotted countryside just south of the midpoint between Boston and Providence.You start from Foxboro, an attractive town with two fine churches and a green forming a central square. A landmark in the town is a small, ornate building that was constructed as a Civil War memorial and for many years served as the town library. From Foxboro you’ll head through tidy residential areas to Plainville, a pleasant rural town consisting mainly of woods, farmland, and orchards. You’ll bicycle along two unspoiled ponds,Turnpike Lake and Lake Mirimichi, and return to Foxboro along forested narrow lanes.
