Vermont Inn to Inn Preview

Vermont Inn to Inn Preview

My first Vermont Inn to Inn was in 2003 when I was still a newcomer to the cycling world. I was rather surprised to be told early in 2003 that my husband was planning to sign us up for the August tour as at that time I had a brand new road bike (my first) and was still trying to figure out how to hang on to a Touring 1 pack. After several months of hard training (or at least that's what I thought) I was still very apprehensive about my abilities.
