Waiting Out The Storm

Sitting at home riding out the first snow storm of the season. Not much going on to write about so again it’s looking back on one of my bike tours.

Day 1 Burlington VT to Plattsburgh, NY: 40 miles on the road and two ferry crossings

Sunday July 21, 2013, 40 miles (64 km) – Total so far: 40 miles (64 km)

As with every tour I take, the first day is long and we really don’t get the miles we expect for the amount of time we are on the saddle. For instance, we looked at doing 80 miles today by riding from Burlington to the Canadian border at Rousse Point then riding south to Plattsburgh. We decided to ease up and ride the bike way on the rails to trails route that took us on a causeway to South Hero. The causeway had a break where a bridge used to span the lake. Now there is a ferry that only accommodates 6 people and their bike for a $5 fee. The money is used to help the Burlington bike group Local Motion.
