Join us for Victoria and Jesse’s scenic adventure loop through VT & NH which includes 3 optional challenge sections for those who wish to partake. Heading NW into Vermont is our first challenge section of the day. From this northern-most point of the tour, the second challenge section awaits as we loop SW on a mix of graded gravel and winding paved roads. Then SE on mostly dirt roads through lush Vermont woods headed for Bradford and our last “challenge” opportunity.
Once the group is gathered again along the shore of beautiful Lake Morey, we head to our NH lunch destination, Loch Lyme Lodge. Voted “best lunch stop” of all last year’s guided tours, you’ll enjoy a sumptuous buffet overlooking very pretty Post Pond.
After lunch, it’s all a relaxing mix of paved and dirt roads bringing us to a fun, NH forest service road which was closed for years and is now part of NEBDR. A photo-op by a very picturesque pond and we head for an ice cream stop on the way home.
Easy bypasses of all the “challenge” sections mean that this tour can be two-up friendly but the 3 short “challenge” sections can test an experienced rider with semi-knobby tires, with loose rocks, sand, mud, and ledges (rocky step-downs).
