Wednesday September 27, 2017 Lamoille Valley Rail Trail Bike Ride by George Plumb

We went from Joes Pond to St, Johnsbury where we had lunch and then returned. It was a great ride down with nice scenery and feeling like being in a canyon at times. Because of the abundant shade heat was no problem. The fifteen mile ride back up the continuous 1% slope was arduous and took us 2.5 hours. This is a once a year ride and next year I will start it at the former railroad station in Danville to save a few miles. The bed is great but the leaves are starting to pile up and I would not do it any later in the season.
