Vermont 2009

August 11th, 2009

For our big vacation this summer we went to Maine and Vermont.  Maine was mostly about spending time with family, but we did sneak off to the Yarmouth Clam Festival to watch the bike races.

  • The peloton approaches the start/finish.
The race photos are a separate set from the rest of the vacation.

After spending time in Maine we went to Vermont to ride some Gaps.  The gaps of Vermont are mountain passes. These are usually around 2,000 feet tall, and tend to be much steeper than the roads in  California.  Weather and some knee problems kept us from doing the six that we targeted, but we did ride Middlebury, Brandon and Appalachian gaps over a couple of days.

We stayed at the Middlebury and Waitsfield Inns.  Middlebury was more of a large Inn, while Waitsfield (a B&B) was  more casual and charming.  The innkeepers at Waitsfield were extraordinarily accommodating and friendly. Both  places were pleasant to visit and we will return at some point to tackle the gaps we missed.

  • Candy shoppe fun.

When we were not riding we visited Fort Ticonderoga and the Ben & Jerry’s factory.

  • FIRE!
