The heart of the Pioneer Valley, midway between the Connecticut and Vermont– New Hampshire borders, is the prime tobacco-growing region of Massachusetts. The valley here is broad and flat, with long, weathered tobacco sheds standing guard over the wide, sweeping fields, and with mountains rising in the distance. The Connecticut River Ramble offers a rare flat route in this mountainous region of the state.

Overall nice ride. Very flat, mostly farmland. Started in Sunderland and had lunch in Northampton, which is a great place to stop. I thought there would be more views of the river, but there are only a few miles on the east side.
