New England - July 4 Holiday Ride

Postby Delnari » Thu Jun 08, 2017 6:54 pm

Planning a street touring ride from Northern Virginia up through PA, NY, VT, NH, MA then beeline back to VA.

When: July 1 - 5 (Early morning departure on the 1st)
4 Overnight Stays (PA, NY, VT or NH, and Boston, MA - watch fireworks at the river)
July 5 ride back to VA via highway/toll roads.

All scenic route from VA to Boston. If time/weather permitting a ride to top of Mount Washington. Motel stays (no camping) and will be letting BMW Navigator VI help with some of the curvy routes. A party on July 4 at the Old West Church in Boston, BBQ dinner followed by a walk to the fireworks. I have 5 tickets to the free BBQ dinner (cash bar) - $120K Tesla vehicle raffle winner will be drawn at the event (https://climatexchangeraffle.org/).

PM if interested.

Have booked the stays for the ride as follows:

July 1 - Candlewood Suites, Sayre, PA; 320 miles
July 2 - Days Inn, Rutland/Killington, VT; 300 miles
July 3 - Hilton Garden Inn, Bangor, ME; 330 miles
July 4 - DoubleTree by Hilton, Boston, MA; 270 miles
July 5 - Alexandria, VA; 525 miles

Total distance is 320 + 300 + 330 + 270 + 525 = 1,745 miles (5 days of riding)

Could change Day 3 & 4 and go from Rutland, VT --> Mount Washington, NH --> Boston, MA. Have to do the July 4th in Boston though. That would knock Day 3-4 total to 325 miles total instead of 600 miles on that leg.
