#26. Bike 25 Miles: Marissa and I went to Burlington, VT for a long weekend 2 summers ago. We spent the entire time hiking, biking and eating. Burlington is such a great outdoorsy town. One morning we rented bikes from a little shop that was right on the trail and off we went.
Biking 25 miles wasn't nearly as tough as I thought it would be, although parts of it were slightly grueling. It definitely helped that the trail ran along Lake Champlain with a gorgeous view of the Adirondak Mountains in the distance. It was so pretty that I might even be able to run a marathon along this trail. Wait no, that is a complete lie.. but it is pretty. Promise.
Most of the trail was paved, which was nice, but at some point the pavement went away and we were stuck with gravel. It's much, much, much harder to bike on gravel, but I guess that means it was a better workout (wonderful. not.) Paved or not, I could have ridden along there for another 25 miles, but there was a cute little crepe shop (The Skinny Pancake) calling our names and it was time for lunch.
