Millions of Revolutions (the pedaling kind) In The Green Mountain State-Part 6

By the end of July 2018 I had roads in 13 remaining towns and cities to complete in my quest to discover and cycle all the paved roads of the Vermont Official Road Map.

Millions of Revolutions (the pedaling kind) In The Green Mountain State-Part 2

In my previous blog, I shared my quest to join the Vermont 251 Club.  While reading on internet sites about 251 Club members who had visited each town by bicycle, I learned about Joe Cook of Dummerston, Vermont.
