Riding the Kancamagus Highway

New England has always been a favorite travel destination for your ever lovable Grey Beard Biker. Some of the most scenic and idyllic small towns in the United States are in New England. The area is chock full of historic sites, rocky points on the Atlantic Ocean and GREAT motorcycle roads.

Last June, we rode to The Race of Gentlemen, in Wildwood, New Jersey. It was our first stop on our big summer vacation on the CVO Limited. Stop two was Laconia, for the 95th anniversary of Laconia Motorcycle Week. LMW is the longest running bike rally in the United States. While we were there, besides taking in Bike Week, we made plans for two rides: the coast of Maine and the Kancamagus Highway.

About the Kancamagus Highway

Running east-west, New Hampshire Route 112 (Kancamagus Hwy) spans roughly 40 miles between Conway and Benton, New Hampshire – nearly traversing the entire width of the state. Cutting a path through the White Mountain National Forest, the Kancamagus Highway offers scenic vistas (with plenty of pull-offs for pictures), one tight switchback and plenty of big sweeping curves. The speed limit is much too low for this Grey Beard Biker, but does allow for some gawking across the valleys. This post contains several pictures from the area, and two GoPro videos from the ride. If you are in the area, make sure to also take time to ride to the summit of Mount Washington. The ride up this 6,200 feet will provide plenty of “white knuckle” moments!
