The Vermont Challenge offers up to four glorious days of riding with cyclists from across the U.S. and Canada. You’ll ride through the picturesque countryside, cross covered bridges, and into historic villages of south and central Vermont. The Vermont Challenge fits a niche between the many one-day rides and those high-end, seven-day packaged tours. It’s the best of both rolled into one four-day challenge. Of course you can chose to ride less than all four days, but to truly experience the beauty of Vermont and this event, we strongly urge you to ride with us for two or more days.
