Day 31 Amsterdam, NY to Keene, NH 125 miles
Another three state day – New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire. A tough day. 122 miles scheduled … a few more ridden due to a few missed turns along the way … and a lot of climbing. Roughly 7,000 feet of climbing. With all that climbing there were some great descents … at one point I was going around 48 mph … wow. We were tired when we got in. We left at 7:00 AM and arrived after 4:00 PM. It was warm … around 80 when we got in and through much of the afternoon. It was a gorgeous ride though. Vermont was very pretty.
We had dinner at Chili’s right after we arrived …rap was at 6:00 PM and we didn’t want to wait until after that was over. After rap, where we went through many of the details for the last bit at the hotel and banquet, we went to the nearby grocery store for ice cream. I had a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Frozen Yogurt … cutting back since we’re nearing the end.
