Date:               Tuesday, May 28 to Sunday, June 2, 2013
Time:               Not applicable
Place:              The Open Road 

Do you fantasize about long, smooth ribbons of pavement?  Roads with broad sweeping turns in undulating countryside which pass through sleepy towns?  Routes that take you from warm sunlight to cool forest shadows?  Mountain passes with twists and turns that challenge both you and your machine?  Then this week is for you...


The journey begins Tuesday morning as you leave behind everyday pressures and wander towards the New England countryside.  Vermont's Green Mountains will crowd the horizon as you travel roads whose characteristics are dictated by the terrain they permit you to visit.  Your destination is the Short Hills Ski Club's Lodge ( nestled in a quiet agricultural valley along Vermont's famous Route 100.  There your bike will peacefully tick and cool in the chill of evening shadows as you sit beside a crackling fireplace (yes, it will probably still be that cool at night) making new friends, exchanging stories, and contemplating the curves ahead.

Can't get away until Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday?  No problem...  Just rendezvous with us at the Lodge when you can! 

Arrangements for this tour will be relaxed and informal.  Fred Larcombe will be happy to place solo riders in touch with other participants in advance of the weekend.  The Ski Club's Lodge is located on an old dairy farm in central Vermont and has authentic rustic charm.  It sleeps forty-six people in bunk-bed style accommodations primarily in two and four person rooms.  There are four generously sized bathrooms, an abundance of hot water, and a large living room with the requisite fireplace.  As a member of the Ski Club, Fred Larcombe has reserved the Lodge for the weekend and will be your host.
