with John, Pamela, Roy, Susan and Drew


One of our favorite annual trips in Tour of Scenic Rural Vermont. We've done this ride many times over the years, but usually add our own unique spin to it, by taking a few detours and adding a few dirt roads. This year Roy and Drew were riding the tandem together, and opted for the standard route, while John, Susan and Pamela criss-crossed the route a few times as we found lovely quiet dirt climbs and descents. Drew did what the trip leader said NOT to do - his first century. And then he did his second one the next day. He's just about recovered and did not report his dad for child abuse.


Vermont has plenty of covered bridges.

And plenty of good dirt climbs.


Good coffee can be hard to find, but we found a nice latte in Woodstock.
