Plucky,
I think the word has been out for while, eh?
Cheers,

I looked it up on a map and I have a girlfriend that lives near there. I might have to plan a trip.

I was there again today. Perfect Fall day. No traffic. At the spring there were at least 10 riders from Quebec.
Good day.

Well you know, on this board we like to see pictures and ride reports. It's tradition!

I will have to take pics next time. I am not good about that. Basically it is a 7+ mile stretch of road in the southern part of the Adirondack park that has good pavement, nothing but 25mph-35mph corners and no driveways. Beautiful part of the country.

Hey vtguy, how about some recommendations for roads in VT. Sister-in-law lives in Dorset and I've ridden 100 and 125, both which I like, but would like to explore VT a bit more.

App Gap, Rt 17, from Bristol to Waitsfield/Warren Rt 100 is a must. And, it has some relatively fresh pavement on it. 125 and 100 are great. If you have not ridden through Smugglers Notch, Rt 108, that is a must.
Buddy of mine is going to take me on a loop tomorrow. Hope to find another decent loop.
Cheers,
Sean
