fall trip around southern vt?

I am thinking of doing a mostly dirt road ride. leaving from Putney VT over the mountain and through the woods to Newfane out through Wardsboro, Stratton and down a "seasonal road" to Somerset Reservoir into Wilmington and back roading it back to Putney.

any one interested? and date suggestions?

Hi, I would be interested in joining. I cannot do this Saturday. Do you work all week days? I might be able to do Sunday or take a weekday off.

I was thinking out a couple weeks, maybe even the Friday after thanksgiving. Assuming the weather holds.

Not yet, been to crazy at work to think about it. Would still like to ride if the weather is decent. Want to try a midway meet up and find some dirt roads?

So a buddy of mine are doing a modified route from Bellows Balls to Wardsboro hitting about 20 miles of national forest road to Wilmington and taking route 9 back to Brattleboro. We hope to take off at 10am to be back by 4.

we did the ride today, pretty much as I had mapped out originally. The forest roads and gravel were a bit dicey with the sun making a nice layer of grease in spots. Always a blast to explore those backwoods seasonal roads and mix in some nice hilly, twisty tarmac. 120 miles 4hours.
