107 Miles of Wide Open Road
Unsanctioned, Timed Event
Gather at Mike’s Tiki Bar at 8 am with a start at 8:30 am. Head north up Route 114 through Island Pond to Norton and Canaan and then down one of the most beautiful and serene stretches of the Connecticut River before returning to Island Pond and then back to East Burke.
We’ve been waiting for years for these roads to be repaved and now that they are this course offers miles and miles of wide open, smooth riding, on some of the most “car hungry” roads in Vermont. This is not a sanctioned race. As a “timed event” you must stop at all stop signs and obey traffic lights. But, hey, there are only three stop signs in the entire 107 miles of riding. As for traffic lights – nadda, niente. And yes, you must yield to oncoming traffic at your left hand turns. But what’s this, there are only two of them.
