VBT Bicycling Vacations

In business since 1971

VBT Bicycling Vacationslogo

It was 1971 when a Middlebury college professor with a passion for cycling started a small company called Vermont Bicycle Touring, known today as VBT. His first tour, a weekend jaunt through Woodstock, Vermont, included six enthusiastic people and an old Porsche with a bike rack strapped to the back.

Thirty-eight years later much has changed but even more has stayed the same. We still have the same passion for cycling, travel and discovery. We’re still located in the original headquarters of VBT, an 18th-century dairy farm located in rural Vermont. What’s changed is the variety of vacations we offer — from one tour in southern Vermont to 28 tours around the world — and the creation of a dedicated, international staff of travel professionals all committed to making sure your VBT vacation is a dream come true.

VBT has been ranked one of the “Best Bicycling Outfitters on Earth” in the 2009 comprehensive survey of the world's top adventure travel outfitters by National Geographic Adventure magazine. “This was a tremendous honor for us,” says Gregg Marston, president and owner of VBT. “We strive to live up to the standards of excellence and value that have been cornerstones of the company for the past thirty-eight years.”
