Hello from Vt

Hello! Iíve ridden bikes since the Ď60ís, and earned a living as a bike mechanic in the early days of Turin Bikes Chicago. I even raced a few years back in the ABLA days - did well on the road, too. Happy to still be riding. Happy to find this site! Tom

Welcome. VT is one of my favorite places. My son went to UVM and I've spent many a weekend over the past 20 yrs enjoying the roads and terrain on my Ducatis.

welcome! went outside today & first words were: "feels like Vermont today" Brrr! brought back memories x-country skiing around the Trapp Family Lodge as a kid. Dad would torture us for 1 week a year up there, but we loved it. did some summer hiking too.

loved the Island Line Trail in Autumn, while visiting Daughter at college in Burly. some kids bike right thru winter! Red Rocks Park is spectacular

some hilly terrain the that state! you ride year 'round?

I used to commute year-round but these days I ride for pleasure only - meaning I can wait for the good days. …not when it’s -3F outside.
