Route 7

US-7 (40 miles)

This great Connecticut motorcycle ride is between New Milford and North Canaan. Much of this route follows along the Housatonic River. There's some sweet, tight curves, elevation changes, and some wide open scenery of the nearby Berkshires, especially around the Kent area. Alternately, split off on Route 4 to Sharon and continue along 41, but either way, this is great ride along the western edge of the state.
