I rode the Goshen Road to Middle Road, back on River Road, back home on Goshen Road loop today (on page 33 of Delorme’s Vermont Atlas and Gazetteer) and that is where this photo was taken. About 36 miles and 4,000 feet of elevation gain, and with the exception of 3 miles or so, all on dirt. Rural Vermont riding at it’s best.

40 years old and he stomped the Tour Divide record – 15 days, 16 hours and 14 minutes!

Lots of great information information in this video and I especially like the large plastic bag for takeout food and the ankle strap around the rain pants ideas. Jay, if you ever stumble across this posting, thanks for sharing the knowledge.
