Bolton Berlin Challenge Ride Professional Review and Guide

"Interstate 495 is often viewed as the demarcation point separating greater metropolitan Boston from Massachusetts’ vast rural areas. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the Bolton Berlin Challenge. The convenience of the highly developed starting area in South Acton is quickly contrasted by long, open stretches of country roads where fast food—or any type of modern convenience—disappears.

Many of the roads go mile after mile without even passing a house. Load up on supplies before heading out on this one, there’s only one real stop for food and restrooms along the way. That inconvenience is easily outweighed by the beauty of the expansive views you’ll enjoy at the top of the route’s climbs and the winding descents that are each climb’s reward. Your camera won’t capture many historic sites on this route; this is a ride for bonding with nature rather than sightseeing."
