Day 2 Fall Foliage trip 2017
Today we started and ended at the same place – so we are still staying at the Waybury Inn near Middlebury VT.
We had a wonderful breakfast at the Inn and then started riding at 9:00am. We rode to Brandon and then did a big loop near Brandon and then back to the Waybury Inn.
The terrain was mostly gentle rollers with a few surprises thrown in. We had lunch in the Branbury State Park near Dunmar lake. It was a Mexican theme with all the makings for sandwiches with tortillas and all the fixings.
At one point our guides encouraged us to sag to “save our legs.” Three people continued riding and almost got to the next point before the van did. So we probably should have ridden – but hindsight is 20 20.
One of the stops along the way was a museum honoring Stephen A. Douglas. We unloaded from the 4 mile sag there. So most of us rode a total of 34 miles today. Some road 38 and a few others rode a different distance.
The weather started off cool, but quickly warmed up in the sun. It was still cool in the shade.
