More Vermont Dirt

After a couple of days in the Ascutney area, we packed up and started heading west on our way to Ithaca. We took our time though, stopping in Brownsville for breakfast, Ludlow for coffee, and Manchester for lunch, then Bennington for an afternoon ride and overnight stay. We found a charming motel downtown, then had the great fortune to find a lovely 30 mile route on ridewithgps. It had some nice dirt roads, lovely vistas and three covered bridges, plus the Bennington monument.

Is the stoker happy?

Silk Road Bridge

Bennington Monument

Downtown Bennington is quite charming. We wandered around a bit and then had a great dinner at Allegro. The next morning, we headed northwest for a short ride before breakfast at Crazy Russian Girls Neighborhood Bakery, and then loaded up the car for the drive out to Ithaca for Quadzilla-Staged...
