The promise part 3


After dawdling around enjoying the early morning I took the fast route to Killington and made a small detour up the access road



And it was in Killington where I picked up the main objective of the trip



Vermont route 100, I've ridden every inch of this numerous times and never tire of it.




And in addition to world class scenery you can always find some amusing suprises

Wow!

Every now and again, I feel the urge to pick up a camera. Funny thing is - I always get that feeling after reading one of your ride reports Joe.

Inspiring - thanks for sharing

Would you mind at all if I PM'd you for routes in and around the Lake Placid area? Some buddies and I started an annual thing last year to head to the Adirondacks and this June we're making Lake Placid our "home" for a few days.

There was some kind of race and a ton of runners participating so it was a good excuse to waltz around the traffic



This is from Smugglers notch where the road narrows to almost a single lane zig zagging through some twists, turns and boulders. Slow and cautious is the rule of thumb here, highly recomended if any one is in the area
