Florence – Cady Hill Forest, Stowe, VT

Kiss my grits! - Florence - Cady Hill Stowe

On our stop in Stowe, we rode the Cady Hill Forest trails for a couple hours. My favorite trail was definitely Florence, or Flo for short. There is an upper and lower section.

Our trip to Croatia and Slovenia was a couple years in the making. We had started planning two years ago to do a bike tour in Croatia and then I would do Ironman 70.3 Pula. That turned into being a little too complex with all the logistics. We finally settled on just renting a car …
