South Burlington, Williston, Essex, Colchester, Winooski, Burlington

Today we filled in our Chittenden County donut hole.  We started at Farrell Park in South Burlington and followed bike paths to BTV.  We then bushwhacked around the airport including a pretty sketchy dirt road to make our way over to Williston.  We crossed the Winooski River and climbed up to Essex Junction.  From there, we cycled to Winooski with detours through Fort Ethan Allen and St Michael’s College in Colchester.  From Winooski, we cycled into Burlington and jumped on the bike path out to the Ethan Allen Homestead.  We cut over to the waterfront and followed the bike path to Oak Ledge Park and then doglegged back to our starting point.

With 2 new towns, we now have 242 towns completed and 9 towns to go.

For Labor Day, we followed a loop route through Chittenden County (mostly).  We started in Richmond and climbed up to Huntington.  From Huntington, we passed through a sliver of Starksboro (in Addison County) on our descent to Hinesburg.  We finished off the loop with stops in Saint George and Williston before returning to Richmond.  One of the roads we cycled in Williston was quite the surprise with million-dollar views of Camel’s Hump, Mount Mansfield and many other Green Mountains.  We now have 197 towns with 54 towns to go!
