I'm trying to plan a cycling route and have never been on this stretch of road so just want to make sure it's suitable for a road cyclist.
Anyone have any comments re; shoulder size, car traffic and speed ect? Would you consider it safe/comfortable for a cyclist?
For what it's worth, In Southern Vermont I have cycled all of rt. 9, rt. 7a from Bennington to Manchester, and rt. 30 from near Bromley to Dummerston before and found those stretches of road okay.....just to give you and idea of what I'd be comfortable with.
I would be doing it this Sunday. I'm kind of hoping with Sunday being a quiet day generally and from what I hear foliage past peak it might be okay for a cyclist.
