Day 49: 78 miles from Brattleboro, VT → Manchester, NH

We entered New Hampshire within the first few miles today and then traveled some of the nicest roads we’ve been on. The scenery included hills, woods, marshes, and streams. I’ve been here in southwestern NH before, as my good friend Glenn from college lived in Keene and Peterborough for some years, but I’d forgotten how beautiful it is. As on Day 1, the ride reminded me why I love cycling. If all goes well, we reach the Atlantic Ocean tomorrow morning!

We encountered beautiful streams and marshes several times today. Other long stretches were on rolling hills through woods.
