Cycle Celebrate Champlain

Early start with a misty rain.

Great ride this past weekend. Bordering on burnout I opted to head out on the century route and adjust as I felt necessary. John and Jim felt the same, Patrick went off the front to tackle the 200k route. We dodged the rain, enjoyed the bike ferry and wonderful carless crossing to the islands, feasted at Hero’s Welcome, then modified the route to include the Plattsburgh Ferry – catching Patrick at a convenience store. We grabbed the Burlington Ferry back to town… as the sun baked us and the waves washed our bikes.

    And 3 cheers to OSH and Mike M for waking up early for the wild bunch. I’ll bring them something frosty on Saturday…

    It was a fun ride, and my bike was squeaky clean after the BTV ferry. Mon dieu.

    Glad you enjoyed the littlest ferry on Lake Champlain. The Bike Ferry will be happy to serve you all again next year!
