Funny... I wasn't sure people were going to want to push this far west. I have a good sized loop mapped out that takes you right by Cabot Cheese (near Montpelier), Vermont Teddy Bear (Burlington), and Ben & Jerry's (Burlington). Here is the google map and I will highlight the locations plus any others people mention. We hope to formally recon this route within the next week or so but all indications are that it's very nice riding. A direct roundtrip is 210 miles in 4 hours while the loop below is 320 miles in 9 hours. These don't include any stop time.

I have this in a Garmin file too if needed.

Remember that the Group dinner will be Tuesday night. We're also going to try to get as many people there so that Roy can take a group photo too.

If it's going to be a long day, maybe we should make the ice cream run on Monday. Either way is fine with us.

Personally, and this is just my sometimes sore butt talking, to maximize “ice cream eating time” we’d likely favor the quick and dirty route. Especially given the need to be back for the dinner if we go on Tuesday.

Monday, might be a bit iffy for those of us who have already been on the road for days? Monday as a bit of a rest day? We are not considering Wednesday as a possible B&J day?

What day is being considered to scale Mt. Washington?

Just throwing random thoughts out here...

Oh wait, just saw again your note Tom about you two heading out Wednesday. OK, Monday or Tuesday then.
