I’m leaving in about 20 minutes for this year’s bike trip. Over the past three summers we rode from Pueblo, CO to Florence, Oregon in three stages. This trip is more modest, a circumnavigation of Lake Champlain in Vermont and New York. We drive to Burlington this evening, bike Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and half of Monday, and return Monday evening. Nine guys, nine bikes, two vans, and multiple coolers, cameras, crates, iPods, iPhones, and laptops. Emails, pictures, and stories to follow. Wish us fair weather.
