Bloomfield to Alburg
Routes 103 (105 miles)
Travel east/west on Scenic Highway VT-105 along the northern part of the state. Much of this route runs along close to the Canadian border. Pass great mountain views near Jay Peak, and on the western side, farmland and cornfields. Late September or early October will showcase New England's famous autumn foliage at its peak.
Searsburg to N Adams, MA
Route 8 (17 miles)
This shorter route starts near Woodford State Park and corners through the southern tip of the Green Mountains. (Optionally continue over the Massachusetts state line and travel west on Route 2 for another short, terrific road into Williamstown, MA.)
Mad River Loop
Routes 17, 116, 100, 125 (66 miles)
This loop is one of the best you can ride in the New England, as it features the scenic beauty of Vermont. VT-17 is especially technical as you ride through the southern tip of Camel's Hump State Forest. One of the downsides of this route is traffic on this road, as well as spots of gravel and sand, so ride this road carefully as you enjoy the mountain scenery.
Route 17 is a mix of extreme curves, and vast farmlands to the New York border on the Lake Champlain Bridge. The major negative of this route as of 2021 is the poor pavement quality. Watch for potholes and cracks in the pavement. Once the state remedies this, it will be an absolute joy to ride again, with its outstanding Vermont country scenery. The eastern portion on this route boast 53 turns in just 7 miles.
Route 102 in the northern part of the state is mostly a smooth road south of Canaan. Pass alongside farmland with views of the Connecticut River on the New Hampshire border. There's a few blind corners to be cautious around, but many great turns and curves with some wide open scenery throughout.
