Please forward to anyone who might be interested in this tour.
This trip had been full, but one rider of each gender has withdrawn. I have some flexibility, and can take a couple, a man and a woman separately, or two of either.
I did the second scouting trip in June, and all routes/cues, lodging and breakfast & lunch locations are confirmed.
I will need to release the rooms soon if these openings aren't filled.
SVHV (Southern Vermont & Hudson Valley) Tour
August 12-17, 2012
This tour extends the previous SoVe tours into the Hudson Valley of New York State. We start in Brattleboro, VT, and ride the first day to Echo Lake Inn, a bit northwest of Ludlow. On Tuesday we cross the Green Mountains and then have some hilly riding to Poultney for lunch, but afterwards cross into NY State with lightly rolling roads in farm country. We spend two nights and a free day in Glens Falls, with many restaurants within a few blocks of our downtown hotel. Day rides on Wednesday head south to Saratoga Springs, and north to the upper Hudson River. Thursday we ride south along the Hudson, then turn east, crossing back into VT and staying at the wonderful Paradise Motor Inn in Bennington, again with restaurants in easy walking distance. Friday morning we climb the Green Mountains, but later have a fun 19 mile downhill which brings us almost to our start. Average daily mileage is about 65, with longer/hillier options usually available. The $685 tour fee includes five nights lodging (double occupancy), five breakfasts, four lunches, one dinner, two happy hours, quality maps, cue sheets and sag support. Maximum of 17 riders. This is a Rogue Riders Bike Club trip. Contact for info or to register. Leader: Charles Hansen Email: email@example.com H: (617) 949-9492
