Tour Of Southern VT (stage 3)

After a 2 day break for weather and the 5 km running race, we finished our Tour with a very hilly 50 mile bike ride this morning.
We started by biking from school out through the town of Stratton.
Heading up the hill into town.
The Levins girls.
The boys took off at a good pace and we broke into smaller groups for the ride.
From Stratton, we headed down through Wardsboro and to rte 30. The smart groups took a feed here before the big climb up Windham hill.
All smiles after the 10 mile downhill :).
The lead group poses on top of Windham Hill.
Mollie (aka hammerhead) storms over the hill.
Are we there yet?
We made some good gains in learning about drafting.
Liz, Pip and Alex on their way up the access road.
Austin, Cam and David get ready for their final sprint.
Ahhhh..the cookout!
Liz flips some burgers before giving way to grillmaster, Jim Levins.
No flats, no crashes...a good way to finish up a big week of training!
Thanks to Lilly for driving the van and taking pictures.
