Hey BF folks! Anyone from the Greater Burlington area? A week ago the snow was still falling and this week we are in the 70s...I got over 70 miles on the bike in the last 3 days! I'm interested in local riding folks who like to ride 30-60 miles. Anyone interested? I'm new to the area so...looking for others to help me explore the new landscape.

Hi Kin, I don't live there now, but I was born and raised in BTV. Graduated from BHS in 75 and haven't lived there since. I love going up for vacations in the summer but try to avoid the place in the winter. Most of my family still lives in the area. I always take my bike up and ride as much as I can. Love riding out to South Hero and through Malletts Bay. I have also rode from Morrisvile down to the lake along the Lamoille River and from Waterbury to the lake along the Winooski River. It's easier riding down river than up, I did ride part way up a few years ago and made it to about Johnson when my wife came along in the car and I said enough. I might try again this year. Don't know any riders in the BTV area. Good luck.
Essex Junction. Riding in the Tour de Cure June 1st and in the MS Tour in mid-August. Would really like some bike buddies for thos 30 to 60 mile rides. Please contact me (but how do you do that in this forum?!)
The Green Mountain Bike Club has a bunch of scheduled rides over the coming months. I have been having trouble getting away for more than an hour or two so... Easier to put them on the calendar and resolve any issues upfront. Their link. http://www.thegmbc.com/touring/2008%20Schedule.shtml
Having said that, if you live around the Williston area, I could help with some routes and maybe a ride or two.
I live in Bristol, the commuting fringe of the greater Burlington area. I did Cochran's century last year; it was great except the last 20 miles of pouring rain! Did my first Ap Gap climb today, some great rides in Addison County.
