VT-110 to VT-14 Barre Loop
Estimated Mileage: 59.4 miles Estimated Time: 1 hour 45 mins
VT-14 and VT-110 are classic Vermont country-sweeper-type roads that features nice views, low traffic and a few twisty sections. Both roads have small villages or towns about every 10 miles, with rural Vermont in between. I frequently use this loop as an alternative to VT-100 during periods of high traffic.
The loop "starts" in Barre. As you pass through downtown and head east, the speed limit is 25 mph -- but the road looks like a 40 mph road. Barre has a full-time police force, so watch your speed through this area.
I like to ride the loop by taking VT-14 south the morning and return via VT-110. This allows you to finish on VT-110, which I think is the more interesting of the two roads and has lighter traffic.
At the intersection of VT-110 and VT-107 stop for pie at Eatons Sugar House. If your in the mood for fried calms, try Toziers Restaurant in Bethel on VT-107.
To shorten the ride, take Chelsea Mountain Rd (a.k.a. East Randolf Rd on the VT-110 end) to cut between East Randolph on VT-14 and VT-110, midway between Tunbridge and Chelsea.
