Ticonderoga to Middlebury, about 33 miles. First stop was Fort Ticonderoga, a tiny outpost that played a large role in US history.
From the fort.
Next a 7-minute ferry ride to Vermont.
Once off the ferry, 17 miles of challenging but do-able terrain, with the remainder gentler rollers. We stopped by a covered bridge. The area surrounding it was populated by little spotted leaping frogs. They moved too fast for me to photograph.
Arrived at Middlebury Inn, grateful to find iced tea and lemonade in the lobby after the day ‘s warm, humid and hilly ride. Ravenous cyclists that we were, every crumb of our delicious dinner got consumed!
