The Killington classic was cancelled due to Irene and it appears that most of central VT is still closed. Crossing into NH isn't much better as all the main east west notches are closed. I'm hoping to get some more riding in these areas and if a local rider could keep us posted it would be appreciated.

I have plans to travel to North Conway NH the week of Sept 19 2011.
I better check the roads carefully...

If anyone local is here - please chime in with suggestions.
I will be coming up from NJ.

Thx.

Just drove up, yesterday from Loudon to Burlington via 16 and 2. Road was fine. North Conway was open for business. Wet, wet though. If you're in the Conway area, stop in to Whitehorse Gear. Lots of stuff and they are friendly.

I've heard that there are places along 112 from Lincoln to Conway that are closed so if you are planning on coming in from the west please check ahead (112 is a wonderful road and if you aren't using it to get from Lincoln to Conway,even if you can't make it through it is probably worth a ride).

Much depends on how you want to go. 28 is pretty decent "middleish" road with speed limits generally between 40 and 55, mostly 2 lane. If you want the slab take 93 to 104 then 25 and 113. Mostly slab,but then ssome secondaries through the lakes region. The other option is 95 north to 16 which gets you mostly there. There shouldn't be any trouble with closures on any of these routes.

Sorry to hear that. I lived in New Hampshire way back when and miss the beautiful scenery. My thoughts are with you guys up there. We are sort of used to the hurricanes down here in Texas. BUT not these goofy wild-fires...
