    I am sure Mark has ridden it a few times already... I hear there is 1 frost heave to look out for.

    Good condition overall. The areas damaged by Irene last year have been repaired well.

    But that damn turtle is still there...

    Just that one turtle to watch out for. The road is in great condition. As Mark said there were a couple of repairs from Irene but they are in good spots and done well. Still one of my favorites semi-locally!

    Re: T-road 2012?

    Ive been hearing about this infamous "T" road since i started browsing this forum. I'd love to be able to check it out and i know its location is "somewhat secret". About how far of a ride from Southern NH is it and does anyone plan on doing a ride out there anytime soon that i could join in on?

    Re: T-road 2012?

    It would be about a 3-4 hour ride from southwestern NH. But if you want to ride up this way sometime I'm sure we could get a few of the Vermont NESR contingent to meet up with you and take you to T Rd.

    time?

    I have to finish putting the bike back together but it is shod with a fresh set of BT003's that need scrubbing.

    We need another T-rd day with the VT crew. Bill...paging Bill. Oh wait, he's all growed up now. William, where are you?

    That would probably be good for those of us who are rocking a vintage body and bike.

    We had a riot last year "before the storm", pictures, wooden bears, bikini tops and video of knee scrapin' is posted up somewhere on here.
    Give a shout when the dates firm up! I'm in southern VT and willing to chuck it 3-4hrs up the road, over a notch or two, to get there!

    Newbie here... just got an e-mail from Cyclewise Ducati, which looks like it went out to all their customers, about a charity ride they're doing along with an Addison Humane Society thing, and the specifically mention they'll be riding over to "the famous" you know where. That's kind of, uhh, talking about fight club, isn't it?

    I want to know more about this T-road! What is it like in terms of turns, bank, fresh pavement? I'm in VT until the last few days of August and have plenty of time to ride.

    Come to Bike Night (Tuesdays, 5:30-8 or so, at Donny's Pizza in Winooski) and find me -- I'm usually sitting at the outdoor table, or if the weather's shitty, at the big indoor table in the middle of the room. Or I might be milling about, in which case there's a 99.9% chance I'm the tallest person around. If you can't find me just ask around; you should quickly run into someone who knows me.

    I ride every weekend, and oftentimes those rides take me over T Rd. You're welcome to tag along. I can tell you more about it in person; one of the first rules of T Rd is that we don't discuss too much about it (including its full name) online.
