VT 400k Update

Our VT 400k route has been certified by RUSA. This route is a scenic tour around much of our great state – taking in the Green Mountains, a slice of the Connecticut River valley, long portions on both Rt 12a and Rt. 100, and quaint small towns like Saxton’s River, Putney, Grafton, and Rochester, VT.

Our halfway stop will be at the famed West Hill Shop in Putney, VT. Some good friends run the place – and they have let me know that in addition to our humble little event passing through town they are running their annual Tour of the Valleys ride. It is also their 40th Anniversary – they will be hosting a party that will start at 3pm, just about right for mid pack randonneurs to arrive and enjoy a festive refueling. They are serving as a stocked control – so they can take care of the go-fast guys and gals too.

The preliminary course can be seen here. Official cue sheets will be verified and finalized in the next two weeks, and will be sent to registered riders upon request.

This ride starts in Waterbury, VT. Accommodations for our out of town guests can be made at a number of local B&Bs or Inns, but the Best Western Waterbury is less than a 1/4 mile from the start.
