Route 2 north of Old Town is flat, straight, lightly traveled and has a decent shoulder most of the way to Howland (with the exception of a short stretch). It runs alongside the Penobscot River much of the way.
Last summer my son and I completed a 50 mile round trip ride from Old Town to Howland. Today my son needed to run 18 miles so we selected Route 2 from Milford to Greenbush for the run while I rode and supported him.
Here is a map of today's ride
