Sounds lovely.

That was a really fun ride on a perfect afternoon, even though I added some miles and hills by turning left in Adamant instead of bearing right. I'm long overdue for bifocals, I guess.

Yeah very good. Weather couldn't have been better and the turnout was very good. Awesome to meet you Jon! My lovely wife got some pictures I'll post after I eat a cheeseburger.

Sorry. Had a full day of company on Friday, and then had to drive to western Mass on Saturday - there was just too much left to do, I couldn't spare the time. Love to see some pictures.

I keep reading the thread title and thinking that there are not so many people in Vermont at all. Nearby perhaps though.

And we need pics!

Jim, Vermont has the smallest population in all of New England states, so relatively speaking, there "are not so many people in Vermont at all."

Of course for me, a Sunday ride can be a real challenge!
