Looking at the map, it's probably going to take me at least an hour to get from Auburn to Fryeburg. Does that sound right or is there some secret route I don't know about?
It looks to me like taking Route 11 to 302 would work or I could go North on 121, then 26, then come back South on 117 to hit 302. What do you recommend, wheelie?
In any case, I'll give you a ring before I take off from work so you'll have some idea of when to expect me. What time will you be available? I could probably cut out any time after 3:00 barring a crisis.
When it's warm, I ride the Kanc all of the time, as I live 10 minutes (North Conway) from it. It's worth it, but you've got to catch it at the right times. Spring is dicey because of all of the sand and crap from the winter that is all over the road. Flying through sweepers is fun until you see a huge sand patch. I've had to pull over a few times and check my pants after those.
Let us know when you want to ride, and hit us up. I'm always up for that ride.
Oh yeah, no doubt about the sand. It's better than most roads around here though. The frost heaves will kill you untill they go down in mid-June Fortunately, they keep the Kanc in pretty good shape due to the tourist attraction that it is.
