Vermont in April

30 - 45 F, sunny

It's nice to be on the road again, so-to-speak, riding to work. Vermont in April is a fickle time of year. It could be snowing or raining. But we get a glimpse of spring. Maple sugaring takes place and the birds light in my backyard, creating a ruckus each morning.

I wanted to share a few photos of my commute.
It's very brown this time of year. I like the wide open spaces of the Champlain Valley.

I love this barn. Later in the year I often will be stopped so the cows can cross the road. I was lucky to catch another commuter going by.

The dirt road I turn down into for the last mile. I love the view of Camel's Hump in the distance.


On the way home the dirt road thaws and the mud builds up in the front fender.
This is near home, a mile of paved path beside a golf course.

I love my commute.

  1. What a lovely scenic commute. BTW, I really like that bar tape. Was that one of your creations or did you purchase? I really enjoyed reading all your posts and will add a link to my site.

  2. Hi Sue. The bar tape is very cushiony. I got it from Bike Nashbar. It comes in 4-5 variegated colors and is not expensive.
