Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? So let's put the two best breakfast joints in New Hampshire head-to-head with a full day of rural driving in between. This is an excellent ride for beginners looking for some time in the saddle without urban hassle or high-speed curves.

Start the morning early with the Riverwalk Café in Nashua- you'll often see a dozen or more bikes parked down by the Veterans' Memorial anyway, and on weekends the parking's free. The Riverwalk's got the best locally-roasted coffee on the east coast and some damn fine food choices too.

From there you head up Main Street, taking a left at every fork until you cross over 3. After the mall, the road merges down to one lane each way and you're in farmland. Still hungry after Breakfast? Lull and Brookdale Farms are a couple good spots for fresh produce and other goods.

Stay on Broad Street (130) until it forks and bear right to the Only Stop Light In Hollis. (If you miss the fork, you'll end up in Monument Square, which is also pretty. Just keep turning right until it dumps you back onto Main Street (122) North.)

Head North on Main Street (122) through some gorgeous countryside, crossing over 101A and 101 until you end up in Amherst. Take a left towards Milford and you'll eventually hit Mount Vernon Street (13) North.

From there it's one quiet highway all the way up to New Boston. If you need a break and some refreshments, there's a general store in Central Square just over the river by the big triangle intersection. Otherwise, don't bother crossing the river, you'll end up there later. Rather than staying on 13, you're now heading north on 136 for a few blocks, then splitting left to 77 North toward Weare.

77 eventually becomes 114 West around Weare, with a convenient gas station at the fork. 114 is your last road before doubling back, so stay on that until you see the sign for Pat's Peak. Taking a left on Flanders Road, you'll immediately see our second breakfast stop: Intervale Farm Pancake House. Again, plenty of bikes parked in the big dirt lot. If you're not interested in breakfast again, they've got an ice cream stand as well.

Despite what the map line implies, you don't need to drive around on Flanders Road if you don't want to… just get back on 114 heading East (back the way you came). When you get to the gas station at the fork again, stay left onto 77 North for a different loop back. 77 eventually intersects unceremoniously with 13 South toward Dunbarton and Goffstown. It's a pretty drive with a few little twists for the beginner to practice on. It doesn't become busy until Goffstown, which has quite a few options for lunch if you're hungry.

At this point you could take 114 to Manchester, but for this loop you're staying on 13 South to get back to New Boston. From there is't just backtracking through the same country roads all the way back to the Riverwalk Café.

Tired of driving? Ready for dinner? The Riverwalk has some fabulous cocktails, local beers, and of course their mind-blowingly good coffee. And if it's evening already, stick around for the live music- they never hire crappy cover bands, it's always something interesting and the place has been set up with proper acoustics, so it's never too loud.

GAAAH… there's no way to edit these things once submitted? Feck.

After New Boston, you're splitting RIGHT to 77, not left. And I'm pretty sure I got some North/South/East/West designations wrong (the compass direction is correct, the actual highway designation may differ).
