|A dreamy ride along the Winooski River.|
I almost missed The Hub. He was pedaling away from me across his workplace parking lot, but I frantically waved and yelled. Thank goodness, he eventually noticed me. That's the last time I talk someone's ear off on a bus ride and forget to call ahead.
The fifteen mile ride from Waterbury to Richmond along The River Road is the quietest, dreamiest ride you could ask for. It makes my ride to work resemble a freeway. There are houses along the way: converted barns, one schoolhouse charmingly now a home, double-wide trailers, and also a few rundown places sprouting derelict automobiles, but thankfully, no subdivisions. Mostly, the road hugs the Winooski River, includng a nice 4-mile dirt section.
