More than 50 young mountain bikers amassed at the trailhead for Pine Hill Park in Rutland on Monday night. Divvying up into small skill-based groups, they left with tour guides and had different ambitions in mind. This week’s People & Places follows the Hill Climbers group, led by Climb Master Bettina Davis and a few volunteers. The group rode the 2.3-mile trail in to Rocky Pond, where they caught the last of Monday’s sun and a gummy bear.
