Well I am back in Burlington, rested up and ready to go.
Looking back on the trip, I am really glad that I had the chance to do it. It was a blast. We traversed 150 miles in two days and didn’t need to buy any gasoline. I would do it again in a heartbeat. I may end up riding to Keene again this fall, even. We’ll see how it goes.
I did want to share three more things about riding in Vermont that I didn’t already know:
1. Route 7 is an awesome bike ride. The shoulders are really wide. The views are pretty amazing. There are definitely hills, but they are more of the long and flat variety – which is right up my alley as a cyclist. I can ride for a long time, but have a really hard time with steep climbs. The traffic is a bummer, but it’s definitely safe during the day for riding. Here is a picture from Route 7:
2. This sign is the greatest sign on earth if you are a tired cyclist in Vermont (or New Hampshire, for that matter):
3. There is no place on earth quite like Vermont. Just a wonderful, wonderful place to live.
You can see more pictures from the trip if you’d like, including what we ate at the Farmer’s Diner, on my Flickr photostream.
Do you have an any awesome things about cycling in Vermont to add?
