N VT Randonneurs, Long Distance Folks
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...
So long. Been nice knowing you BF.... to all the friends I've made here and in real life... its been great. But this place needs an enema.
