Cool mornings, warm colors, rolling hills invite you. Round the corner and you’re high above in the Green Mountains. Around the next, quiet farmlands. Taste the maple. Hear the hum of your wheels on the timber of a covered bridge. Take the afternoon in Woodstock and walk the quaint shops in biking shoes. It’s okay. They’ve heard the "clip-clop" before. Southern Vermont was made for the ride.

  • Ride beneath oak canopies, along picturesque rivers and by old red barns in Southern Vermont
  • Taste maple syrup, cheese, beer and other local delights
  • Gourmet cuisine and sophisticated country inns
  • Woodstock, a quintessential New England village
  • Rolling routes past grazing cows and quaint towns, mixed with serious ascents and rollicking downhills
