Bloomfield, Lewis

Well, that was an adventure!  On Saturday, we mounted the 29-er’s for a foray into Lewis…population 0.  We entered at via Stone Dam Rd in Bloomfield and followed a gentle climb to Lewis Pond and then beyond to the Lewis Pond Overlook.  The roads were in pretty good shape for a town with no citizens.

With the addition of Lewis, we have now cycled through 251 out of 251 towns!  Although we have technically completed our quest, we still plan to visit Avery’s Gore and Warner’s Grant to complete our quartet of gores/grants.  So we will post an update about that later. We will probably also post some summary statistics from our adventure to wrap things up.

Brighton, Morgan, Norton, Averill, Canaan, Lemington, Bloomfield, Brunswick, Ferdinand, Maidstone, Guildhall

This weekend, we enjoyed two days of awesome cycling in the Northeast Kingdom.  On Saturday, we cycled a loop route through Brighton, Morgan, Warren’s Gore (extra credit!), Norton, Averill, Canaan, Lemington, Bloomfield, Brunswick and Ferdinand. Today, we cycled a Connecticut River loop. We started in North Stratford, NH and cycled downriver on the Vermont side through Bloomfield, Brunswick, Maidstone and Guildhall.  We returned upriver on the New Hampshire side.

With 10 new town’s completed, we have now cycled through 238 towns with 13 towns to go.  Also, with the addition of Warren’s Gore, we have cycled through 2 gores with 2 grant/gores remaining.
