Vermont Bicycle Tour

Read it while it's up there; I don't think the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's links are permanent. This travel article in today's paper is about a couple from Fort Worth that did a bicycle tour of Vermont. Here are the photos. (In Photo 8 is a pic of the tour guide with his classic Raleigh )

Thanks for posting the article. There's little written here about supported tours; it's good to be reminded that they are part of touring too.

If found that Vermont is a great state to bike, but like the article points out, it isn't flat.

If you want an unsupported tour, try ACA's Green Mountain Loop, or a variation of it.

Here are a couple of nice VT tours and plenty more if you look for tours by location.
