Wed. Day 2 (8/2)

Posted by thatwindguy on August 3, 2006

Tried to get a continental breakfast but left due to super slow service at the Putney Inn. Great local food last night, they just need to work on the service part – it matters. Ran out of OJ, waited 15 minutes for ordering cereal but gave up and left at 7:30am and headed for the Miss Bellows Falls Diner which was fast, great food and friendly to the 4 of us sweaty bikers. Arrived at Ascutney Mt. Resort at 2pm after 46 miles in extreme heat and humidity. Jumped in the pool between thunderstorms. Tomorrow I will upload from my cell phone a picture of us enjoying a cool dip in a roadside waterfall – it was absolutely great and it took our breaths away. Had a great dinner here. I ate 3600 calories today and burned 2300 biking. My budget is 2400 and then need to replace the biking 2300, so I am still behind in my eating by 1100. Pigging out on peanuts, ice cream, gator-aid. Hard to eat that much but I was feeling real weak as we climbed the final hills to the mountain resort. Gotta eat more as tomorrow is a 65 mile day. We are burning 50 calories a mile so I gotta eat 5650 calories tomorrow! We all are really enjoying the trip and got to see a bunch on John Miller’s family along the way since Putney is where he grew up.  Vermont is a great place. Onward to Wells River on Thursday.

    Hi Guys,
    Glad to see you are making headway! We were thinking of you and the intense heat and how hard it was going to be to deal with the humidity. Looked like there was some serious storm activity on the radar. Hope the rest of the trip is smooth riding.
