Last weekend I headed north to Vermont to visit my parents. We spent the whole time on our bikes!Vermont is in wildflower season right now and the weather was just spectacular. Vermont has some of the best cycling in the country (don't ask me, Bicycling Magazine will tell you!), and during warm weather, most of my "family time" is spent pedaling the Missisquoi Valley Rail Trail.
This time we rode a nice stretch of route 14 between East Montpelier and Woodbury, taking in the rolling hills, and the next day we went out on our favorite back roads, photographing wildflowers and chatting with friends at the general store.
