Join Jim and Neil for the second day of our Burlington, VT-area biking weekend. We'll do a 20-mile round trip ride from Oxbow Park in Morrisville to Old Mill Park in Johnson and back. We'll ride the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail, which follows the Lamoille River through north central Vermont. The route is relatively flat, though there are some rolling hills. The trail surface is compacted crushed stone, OK for most bikes, but best suited for hybrid or mountain bikes. Consider borrowing or renting one if you have a road bike.
While we won't have a formal lunch stop, we will make periodic rest stops. Bring snacks and plenty of water. A sweatshirt or light jacket would be advisable as well. If there is interest, the group will have dinner at a restaurant in Morrisville or Stowe afterwards. We’ll discuss that during the trip.
Watch for updates about this ride in the coming weeks.

Meet at 1 p.m. at Oxbow Park in Morrisville, VT.

Hi Everyone - if I could offer some travel advice, those coming from southeast to avoid Rt 100 North, particularly Stowe, due to summer traffic through there. Alternatively, choose Rt 12 from Montpelier to Morrisville. Feel free to email me directly. Fred aka vtfred
