New Hampshire or Vermont ???(3 posts)

New Hampshire or Vermont ???rs
Jun 13, 2001 12:12 AM
I am looking to spend 5 or 6 days cycling in NH or VT. I would like to pick 2 or 3 towns to stay in and ride loop courses each day. Are there any suggestions for clubs to contact, towns to consider, etc.

thanks in advance,

Reid

As a Vermont resident, I would have to say Vermont! Our State is beautiful, and pretty cycling friendly. I live in Jeffersonville, just on the other side of the mountain from Stowe, and the Rt 108 ride between the two towns is breathtaking - and worth the climb. If you prefer lakes, there are loads of good rides and roads by Lake Champlain. ( I just did a 50mile charity ride from Vergennes/Ferrisburg, and the views of the lake and the adirondack mountains were wonderful.)
There is also the Grand Isle area of Champlain closer to the Canadian border. - Like the ad's say on TV - It's all good!

Have a good day, and good luck!

New Hampshire is a nice place to ride. We have everything from flat coastal rides to greuling mtn rides up in the whites. It really depends on what you want to accomplish. Do you want to ride only or are you looking for some action outside of that? Shopping/recreation/night life, etc. I'd reccomend the Woodstock/Loon mtn area or the Portsmouth or lakes region area. The kancamangus highway from Lincoln to North Conway is a kick ass ride. 118 from Woodstock to rte 25 to rte 3 is another. Beautiful 6 mile climb with a gorgoeously paved decent.
feel free to ask if you have anymore questions.
