Crown Point


I joined the GMBC Touring group this past Sunday for the the Crown Point Caper. I chose the 40 mile option (and added some bonus miles for a navigational mistake). I rode to the start from Shelburne, so I had about 68 miles total for the day. I’d guess there were between 20 and 30 cyclists out for the ride.

The ride left from Vergennes and headed over the Crown Point Bridge to NY. A quick break at the campground and I headed back north, through some lovely countryside. The route was primarily flat – but the headwind on the way home wore me down – especially with the extra miles back to my starting point.

Southern end of Lake Champlain, from the bridge.

The bridge from Basin Harbor Road.

Bookends – Mansfield and Camel’s Hump. I’m in the planning stages of a RUSA Permanent that will circle both of these mountains.

A house somewhere in Charlotte. The owner must be investigating siding / enclosure options!

    You make me very nostalgic for the old country. I grew up in Hudson Falls and guided canoes in the Adirondacks during the summers. Someday, I just gotta’ get back!
