Manchester VT to HOME 65.5 miles Sep 21

I'm home, it's done and I'm happy.  After a really great dinner, good sleep and a fun evening with Julie and Frank, owners of the Inn at Manchester, I was on the road at 7:00. A beautiful and cool morning, not cold.  It was to be. A 66 mile sprint up route 30. What a beautiful ride in the souther part of the state. Then riding along the lakes and finally the hills from the lakes into Middlebury.  The great help was a very strong wind on my back which really pushed me along.  One of my fastest days rides at 12.5 miles per hour, pretty fast for day 24. I arrived at the Swift House Inn at 2:15 with a large group of friends to greet me, great banner and cake.  It was very exciting arrival.  Took a shower and a nap.  I am very happy to be home and the trip was made easier by a group of great friends and family.  I'll make another post in the next couple of days to give some of thoughts
