Forty-six turning 38

Little ring. 
Every October marks another turning over of my personal odometer, a few more kilometers closer to the grave.

Showing that I am perhaps a little wiser -- as well as fatter, and slower -- in my advancing years, I set up the drivetrain of my road bike with 52/38 chainrings, and am running a 25 cassette.  The idea is to make climbing at least a little easier going forward.
Waterbury to Waitsfield by bike. 
Small gears make ride profiles like this easier to manage -- and Route 100 through Duxbury does not count as one of the longer, or steeper, climbs in the area.
