I love that general store and that bridge. When I lived in VT I used to ride that road to get lunch at the store.

You forget how quickly the leaves fall...


Evening sunlight and the number of snowless Saturdays left in the year are running short


So you have to take advantage of every warm ray you can


nothing like catching some gaps before breakfast


at the top of App Gap on Route 17






Then Lincoln Gap








then off for coffee at Bristol Bakery, ahh... still feels like fall anyway

Nice new camera. Eric and I just did an Around the Lake ride. I would have let you know but it was last minute. Anyway, real fun, 180 miles bridge to bridge, 5 hours with breaks. Up north on both sides you can ride right next to the lake.

Richmond, I believe... I'm glad you posted again as I hadn't seen your RR before. Enjoyed reading it last night. Hope this is a preview of coming attractions.

That creemee stand is on Route 2 just north of downtown Montpelier, always worth the trip.

On the roads again

Hit the Northeast Kingdom last week with a new riding partner on a TU250


We found some great dirt around the Craftsbury/Albany area and a good sandwich at the Craftsbury store


Put the gazeteer to good use

South Central Loop

SUnday we took a loop from Hinesburg to Bristol to Middlebury on the squiggliest lines we could find and cameout on Route 100 in Rochester. Then we made use of the front porch at Wildwood antiques to check the maps again...

Not far down the road, we thought Liberty Road looked like a good option


After it got class 4 and the "not maintained by town" notice, we pressed on




Then we finally came to our senses, but that was fun!

Lunch

Since we had to double back to 100 south, we stopped at the General Store in Pittfield, an excellent lunch option

Liberty Hill Road is a classic class four, and if the traffic is heavy on 100, it's not much slower (it cuts the corner between Emerson and Pittsfield). Last I was through, there was nothing particularly hairy, but there are definitely a couple of spots where you want to be on the right line.

I did once try to get my Ninja 250 through from the Pittsfield side, but I gave up around the time I got to the first real uphill on the class four section, shortly after I had gotten a bit off line on a waterbar and ended up running into a tree. I've generally had better luck with my GS.
