I've always been partial to Bristol, VT




Mark,

I'm going to be in Bennington, VT from 5/31 - 6/4 for the Bennington Triumph Bash (all bikes are welcome).

Bristol looks to be a 2+ hr ride from Bennington.  Any recommendations on things to do, places to eat etc, etc.

I always ride RT 100 up to the Brandon Gap then zig zag the gaps.
73, 125 & 17.  The Lincoln Gap isn't numbered and gravel on top.
The Warren Store off 100 in Warren is a great lunch stop.

Oh no video needed for me! We rode through it and I thought it was great, just others weren't as thrilled about it.

That's the type of riding I really like, hence the Tiger XCx. We rode the PDR last year from start to finish and it was a blast. We did a little exploring off of that which started as two track then turned to single then got to the point where we needed a dirt bike so we turned around.
