Seeing the B&M design etched in the leather seats was pretty neat!

Bicycled it this summer. It's downhill all the way down to St. Johnsbury. I was going about 17mph the whole way. Coming back to Morrisville? I was doing about 8MPH. It's a continuous grade probably about 1%, except for about 1/4 mile where it reverses grade.

Did it with my father last fall from the Jct. at St. J, to Marty's 1st stop and back. Heading west, it sure is a good leg workout. You aren't wrong, sure is fun cruising the way back though, almost don't have to pedal the downhill stretch paralleling Route 2.
