Ride to Stowe overnighter!

On May 2 and 3, there will be a ride up to Stowe, Vermont.

This ride will cover 300-400 miles of some of the most wonderfully curvy roads between Brookfield, CT and Stowe, VT. And that's just the first day!

Day two will cover another 300 or so miles on another route that will take you down through NY state and back to Brookfield.

Count on a fairly spirited ride, with very brief stops every 60-100 miles or so. It's recommended you bring some snacks/lunch and hydration.

Shoot me a message if you are interested in going on this trip.

It will be a rather convoluted route which should take about 8-10 hours, depending on how many stops there are.

I have a general route list, but it will likely be modified during the trip. Here is a route list:

Up

133-67-199-109-209-202-63-4-272-57-8-143-East Windsor Road-9-8a-112-100-East Dove Hill Road-30-35-11-103-100-107-14-110-Tusker-302-232-2-214-14-Hartwick-15-108


Down

100-17-116-125-100-73-30-315-153-22-67-40-142-7-278-2-351-66-9h-82-199-82a-83-44-99-343-23-24-9-21-home

Yeah, that's hard to read unless you have a map in front of you!
