Manchester VT to HOME 65.5 miles Sep 21

White house with red door in distance. Red building surrounded by trees with mountains in background, cars in parking lot.

I’m home, it’s done and I’m happy.  After a really great dinner, good sleep and a fun evening with Julie and Frank, owners of the Inn at Manchester, I was on the road at 7:00. A beautiful and cool morning, not cold.  It was to be. A 66 mile sprint up route 30. What a beautiful ride in the souther part of the state. Then riding along the lakes and finally the hills from the lakes into Middlebury.  The great help was a very strong wind on my back which really pushed me along.  One of my fastest days rides at 12.5 miles per hour, pretty fast for day 24. I arrived at the Swift House Inn at 2:15 with a large group of friends to greet me, great banner and cake.  It was very exciting arrival.  Took a shower and a nap.  I am very happy to be home and the trip was made easier by a group of great friends and family.  I’ll make another post in the next couple of days to give some of thoughts
