The last big riding day is now complete. Climbing through the Green Mountains in Vermont and entering the White Mountains in New Hampshire was a real blast. Great scenery - Lakes, Rivers and small towns with historic buildings, etc. etc.
I spent a large part of the day riding by myself just taking in all the many views. As I mentioned yesterday, it is hard to really look around while riding in a pace line. My approach for today maximized my experience of riding through New England.
After 30 straight days of not getting hit by rain, a storm finally let loose just before the final SAG stop for the day. It was raining in sheets as I found my way to the SAG stop. I had a very hard time seeing my bicycle computer GPS map and the cue sheets to find the location. The rain stopped after about 20 minutes.
Tomorrow is the grand finale - 53 miles to Rye's Beach New Hampshire. While I have thoroughly enjoyed this tour, it will be good to get home.
