Cool mornings, warm colors, rolling hills invite you. Round the corner and you’re high above in the Green Mountains. Around the next, quiet farmlands. Taste the maple. Hear the hum of your wheels on the timber of a covered bridge. Take the afternoon in Woodstock and walk the quaint shops in biking shoes. It’s okay. They’ve heard the "clip-clop" before. Southern Vermont was made for the ride.
