Anyone out there?
Looking for routes with lots of length, and lots of climbing.
I'm a bit disappointed having moved to Burlington - it now seems I have to travel to climb. When I was in S. VT. I had routes with lots of climbing right out my door!**
Point me in the direction of some climbs... share some routes...
Any Brevets in this neighborhood? Upstate NY? Montreal?
I did the Middlebury and App a few weeks ago:
70 miles in a loop starting in Waitsfield, VT.
7,500 feet of climbing - including the 2 passes, with gradients tipping to 20% on Appalachian Gap.
The Green Mountain Stage Race climbs over Middlebury and states in the race bible that the highest grade E-W is 18%.
**disclaimer - I'm not a great climber - just looking for challenges and to ride some incredible scenery and get the HR up - and repeat that over and over again...
