    NEK Gravel Weekend - Two Mountain Gravel - Class 2, 3 and 4 roads over Kirby Mountain to one of the most beautiful valleys in the Northeast Kingdom and beyond. Two variations to get there - one via more Class 4 road.  Then both travel along the lovely and relatively flat River Road to Gallup Mills and then up over Victory, back to 114 and East Burke.

    For Friday and/or Saturday night, cyclists can stay at Tom and Pat's house in Lyndonville, just outside of East Burke. Vaccinated folks can lobby early for a spot inside the house but there is plenty of camping in the yard. After the ride, drinks at the Tiki Bar.

    If parking at Mike's Tiki Bar is full, then go to the log yard, Kingdom Trails parking just before East Burke. We will meet by the Tiki Bar.

    This is a lovely ride on gravel roads, including both class 4 and a CCC road through Willoughby State Forest. It starts at the north end of Lake Willoughby, traveling counterclockwise around the lake. The route heads to the west side of the lake and then by Wheeler Mountain on a Class 4 road, goes out to Route 5 briefly, and then the CCC road through the state forest to Route 5A. After a steep climb up to Newark Pond, the route climbs more on a Class 4 road up and down to Long Pond and back out to Lake Willoughby. Swimming at the lake afterwards.

    For Friday and/or Saturday night, cyclists can stay at Tom and Pat's house in Lyndonville, just outside of East Burke. Vaccinated folks can lobby early for a spot inside the house but there is plenty of camping in the yard.
