Day 48: Schroon Lake, NY to Middlebury, VT

Today was spectacular! It was an absolutely beautiful ride from New York, through the Champlain Valley and into Vermont. I rode with a college friend of my mom’s named RB Klinkenberg. He lives in Burlington, Vermont and took me through some of his favorite places. We checked out Fort Ticonderoga and the rest of the Lake Champlain area. Honestly, it was one of the most beautiful rides of the trip so far and I used to live nearby! (I lived in Vermont from when I was one until I was five and I moved to North Carolina). I had a lot of fun and I look forward to a rest day tomorrow before the final push!

Look it’s me!

  1. Jack,
    I’ll be sad when your journey ends. It’s been such a delight all summer to follow your path and observations.

  2. I think history makes all the difference in our lives and when we experience it we truly recognize that or at least we all can hope we do…and I think you have.. Vermont-your mom’s college friend-beautiful way to to close part of your journey. Enjoy and be present in your last pedals through the Northeast-a big part of your history-even before you were born it’s your history. I remember traveling to Greece-my grandparents were from Greece -but when I saw the water and experienced the warm/kind people who love to talk on & on..I was like-wow-my people! Enjoy the moment, Jack!!

    Thanks for sharing, I have throughly looked forward to your updates & photos.
