90 miles, 5341 feet climbed
After yesterday’s chilly weather, today was more moderate. There was a patch near Burlington where rain preceded us, leaving wet pavement in the shaded areas but that was all. The elevation gains came from many small climbs, spread throughout the day. I was hurrying to make sure I had time to pick up my rental car before the Avis office closed at 5. I made it to the hotel by 3 pm, showered and made it with plenty of time to spare.
We had a reception at 5 and our banquet at 6. Various awards were given and staff. Unlike past tours I’ve taken, the riders were not invited to make comments, not a complaint from me, just an observation.
