9. Vermont/NH/Maine Bicycling Across The USA Travel Writing

Through New England, Oct. 19-22

c2c4-vermont-new-hampshire-maineOn Sunday the 19th we entered Vermont on State Route 313 at Arlington, then took Route 7A to end up in Manchester that night. Then we climbed the Green Mountains on U.S. Route 11 to the top in Londonderry, and continued to cross the Connecticut River in Springfield. In New Hampshire the route continued on U.S. 11 through Claremont. Se stayed on Lake Sunapee on Monday night and continued Tuesday morning through New London and Franklin, where we switched to state routes 140, 107, and 126, ending up in a motel in Rochester. We finished the ride on Wednesday the 22nd by continuing on routes 108 and 236 to the Maine border, then doing the last 30 miles on state route 9. We dipped our tires in the Atlantic at Wells Beach, near the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge.

I like how, by now, you say things like “then we will climb the Green Mountains” as just another opening clause in a sentence(!)

It was good to see you both last Sunday and verify that you haven’t been holed up somewhere, writing a blog for two months, making us think you were really bicycling. I enjoyed Jim’s stories amplifying some of Brad’s blogs.

On to Maine! I’ve been to the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge – it is a perfect place to end your trip.
