The weather here in VT was spectacular on Sunday after the storms on Saturday which broke the high heat and humidity. Since I was left to mine own devices (wife away), I decided to go on a nice long ride. Now this most likely is not a long for most people, but being a relative newcomer to scooters, was for me. Plus I was able to ride my ride and not have to be concerned with the rider usually behind me (wife).

So, I consulted the gazetteer but pretty much knew where I wanted to go. Pretty straight forward, RT 4 from Rutland, to Scenic RT 100 to Morrisville, RT 12 to Woodstock, then RT 4 home. About 200 miles.

Packed a picnic lunch which I ate at my planned stop at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, hence the title of this post. It was a glorious ride with lots of scenery. I also am trying an app that was shown to me at AV2019 called Relive. Since pics can be included in it, I tried to stop and take pics. I need practice at that and also need to work on editing in Relive.

Here is the link to the ride: https://www.relive.cc/view/rt10006328838

Stopped at Long Trail brewing, bought this. Hope it is not foreshadowing.

The Over The Handlebars is only available for sale at the brewery. Worth a ride if you visit her or does she ride also?

Wow !!
If that's your first attempt at a ride report , you sir are "Da Man"

Kind of reminds me of the routing they show daily on the Tour de France.

Thanks, no I did not try any blueberry beer. I have not been a fan of fruit flavored beers but may have to try it again.

I never even knew it existed till a few years ago. I rode from RI to Sebago Lake and back stopping at places along the way for it. Wish I could find a west coast supplier
