|Today I got to meet up with a friend from the maxi-scoot forum. We took a long ride in the 100 degree heat of about 240 miles riding through Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. Had a great time and Paul mapped us out a fantastic route. Here are some highlights of the very long day, about eleven hours in the saddle.|
The ol' birds meeting up in Littleton, MA.
Honda seems to like things with wings!
Our first covered bridge find. I forget the name of this bridge but it is still in service and in quite good shape.
Paul waiting as I run in down the road in 100 degree heat wearing full gear to get a photo of a church that caught my eye. Probably didn't think I was too bright at that moment.
Here's the church. I pass these types of churches all the time in New England and always wanted to get a photo of one.
The Dummerston bridge. Still in service but only room for traffic in one direction at a time.
Finally a good meal on the road, I guess third times the charm. I can highly recommend the Newfane Cafe and Creamery to anyone visiting Vermont.
The most delicious BLT I've ever had.
Check out this table inside the cafe, the top is made of jar lids.
Only to be outdone by this lounging sofa.
It's made of coins!
The mighty Nighthawk.
Overlooking the Dam.
Another one! The Scott bridge. This one was closed to traffic and in some disrepair.
Some great views of the river through the broken slats of the bridge walls. Kids were jumping off the bridge and into the river.
The inside of the Scott bridge. Notice the two large arcs on either side. These were added later to strengthen the bride, it didn't work.
Back to the bikes.
An old water wheel. I don't think this is much more than a tourist attraction anymore as it is near a large country store.
A quick stop for one last refreshing treat. Delicious vanilla and banana split gelato in Peterboro, NH.
The long road home.
Had a great time even in the blistering heat, now I need to febreeze my helmet after sweltering in the sun all day!
