V-CC Vermont Weekend


Into the barn

Throw down some fresh hay, he's in for the night.

Sensory overload

Our hosts

Watch your plate, he's on the the make.

Hatching a plan to get that Hetchins?

Day Two begins

The bike jitney arrives.

Davis arrives.

At the Charlotte-Essex ferry, with the Adirondacks in the distance

1951 Dawes

The weather in NY looks good.

Looking back toward the Green Mountains

Back on the road in Essex, NY

The Adirondacks

Long hills, few gears

The view at the top

Dan, Glenn, and Carol note ominous crack emitted from nearby tree. Bob and Elton continue to talk bikes.

Unlike the last house we passed, the gnome on this porch is fully clothed.

First those on hub gears yield, later some on more modern gears will join in the sociable stroll.

1938 Hetchins Brilliant

1970s Mel Pinto (Urago) tandem and 1948 RRA

Thunder and lightning bring a hasty end to lunch.

1959 Mercian KoM and 1967 Hetchins Vade Mecum

The ladies were amused by this

Sometimes they do make 'em like they used to.

Fellow traveler

Day Three - swallow's eye view from the barn. 1898 Orient with shaft-drive, 1934 Raleigh RRA.

One of Davis's drawings

Burlington bike family



No New England Section run is complete without a path in the woods.

Mary leads the way to the Intervale, and my battery fades.
