||During the spring,
summer and fall, the weather in New England is excellent
for riding. On hot days, there will be various places
where you can stop to swim in local lakes, streams,
rivers or gorges with waterfalls. You might choose to
visit the Indian Motorcycle museum or an exotic car
museum, tour the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream factory,
visit the former home of Norman Rockwell or enjoy an
historic New England village.
"Escape to the Mountains" tour includes shared
accommodation, full country breakfasts and open-menu gourmet
dinners. Single accommodation is available at extra cost. The tours begin in
West Dover, Vermont and end in
Montpelier, Vermont which is about 120 miles north of West Dover. For
riders who wish to return to West Dover at the end of the tour, a map
and route sheet for that return ride can be provided upon request
and hotel reservations in West Dover can also be arranged.
