David and Phil had met at 9 AM at the Cambridge commuter lot, loaded bike onto David’s bike rack, and headed up to Sheldon Corners. Rich was waiting at the creemee stand for a guide through the maze of the sheds and buildings back to the trail parking area, which is at the 9 mile marker on the trail (09 miles from the trail start in St. Albans). Properly helmeted, we started north around 9:45. It was partly cloudy, cool, and a little breezy to start, but the wind started picking up after we passed Enosburg Falls.
We reached the end of the trail in Richford at the 26+ mile marker somewhere around noon, and after a brief rest and a bite to eat (for those who hadn’t left food in the car), headed back. The wind had picked up and was a very consistent and strong headwind on the way back, but we got back to the cars around 2:30.
Participants – Richard Larsen, Phil Hazen, David Hathaway
