Last weekend, we cycled the Vermontréal trip with Sojourn Bicycling. On Thursday, we departed Burlington with 20-something other folks en route to Sunday’s Tour de l’Île in Montréal. We followed the Burlington Bike Path and the Island Line through Colchester. It started to rain around the bridge over the Winooski River. The bottom fell out as soon as we were out on the causeway in the lake. It was like cycling through a car wash! The rain had stopped by the time we reached the bike ferry. We cycled on through South Hero and Grand Isle to Shore Acres Inn in North Hero. For good measure, we added on a side trip to Alburgh and Isle La Motte to include every town in Grand Isle County in a single day. On Friday, we left North Hero and cycled through Alburgh to the border.
(We ended the day Friday in St. Jean-sur-Richelieu. On Saturday, we went for a long scenic ride in countryside east of the Richelieu before returning to Chambly and proceeding to Montréal across the Pont Jacques Cartier. On Sunday, we rode in the Tour de l’Île along with 15,000 of our closest friends. Plus or minus.)
With this outing, we have 94 towns down and 157 to go.
