    YAY! I’m really looking forward to this event.

    If anyone wants to ask me about the area, talk about routes and just pick my brain about Vermont Riding, reply or send me a private message and I’m happy to help.

    The charter club for Vermont is located at https://bmwmov.club/ (I’m really proud of our brand new website) and a few of the members of that club are going to help me out with some routes and such. I’m looking forward to welcoming MOA members to Warren in September.

    Hi everyone. MOA Member Jeff and I today started our first of three scouting rides for this getaway. Jeff has come up with three really good concepts all starting at Sugarbush and varying levels of difficulty, fun, sweepers, 2-up riding and my favorite, a "Bread & Beer" ride that goes past the best Vermont bakeries & breweries for about a 3 hour ride so you can get up, have a delicious pastry, head out and be back mid-afternoon for tea.

    I'm working on some other connectors to some existing fun off-road rides for those who want to challenge themselves. Here's a taste:

    YEP! We're doing 3 routes at least and this one has 5 covered bridges, one floating bridge, a lot of well packed dirt roads and some nice views of the mountains.

    The members will enjoy all the old covered bridges still in service in that area.
    We like the historic little towns and old country stores.

    That's a good stop.
    Pick up a bag of Vermont Common Crackers.

    35 miles NE of there is the Cornish-Windsor Bridge over the Connecticut River.

    You can no longer drive across this one. Never heard why it was taken out of service.
    It appears to be in good condition.

    If you like to look at historic buildings and homes, Woodstock is a good place to walk around.
    50 miles south of Warren.
