  • It will be a long day on/with your bike.
  • The terrain will be challenging, to the fullest extent of the word.
  • There are little to zero route markings.
  • Planned water drops and aid stations may exist, but don’t plan solely on them.
    • Be prepared to go 3-4 hours between water sources, Vermont is graced with many general stores and remote gas stations. And friendly neighbors too.

  • Every bike is the wrong bike, so bring the one with the lowest gearing that you’ll be happy riding all day.
  • Please email any and all questions, we will answer them to the best of our ability.
  • The official route will include stores/water stops, business hours, swimming holes, shortcuts, long cuts, ice cream stands and everything else you’ll need to know to make the most of your day here in VT.
  • The start will have camping the night before and after. Where ever that is.
  • You will receive the route on Friday 7/26 by 9:00am. Do not ask for it beforehand.
