    VT Uncovered Bridges ride - 2018


    Yesterday turned out to be a great day for the annual VT Uncovered Bridges ride! We've held this ride for 11 (or 7, or 10, or something like that) consecutive years but at times have missed a year or two or three in between. Five of us showed up and hit some tremendous VT roads (a good number of them were new to us and we'll be sure to revisit) entering the state from Lyme, NH and running out to a bunch of towns including Sharon, Barre, Bethel, Pittsfield, Weston, Chester, and Grafton. Mostly pretty much cage-free! We headed back into NH through Bellows Falls, VT and finished up the day with 30 miles of fantastic backroads into Sunapee, where we broke off and headed home. Door to door for me was about 300 miles so probably 350+ for the others. Gumby served as the official bridges counter this year so he'll have to provide the final tally, but I counted somewhere between 23 and 60. A few pics attached.

    Mike, thanks again for putting this ride together. Certainly the most epic ride that I’ve been on this year, as the road selection was utterly ridiculous. Coupled with being a gorgeous day, great group of riders, no incidents, and no performance awards.
    Quote of the day “What did I do?!”

    Great pics guys.
    As Mark said...an epic ride! Thanks Not Sure for planning and leading it. Nice to have Nate and Big Jon join the party.
    Not Sure...As a group, we saw a record-setting 67 uncovered bridges!
    I agree with Trajiks9's quote of the day, but a close second..."Guys, I've slowed down. Seriously."
    There's a pic of apresn's R6 at the meet spot. Did he get dropped???
    The only disappointment was the last minute no-show of our old buddy Dragginazz. Otherwise, it was a perfect day!
