Bike Tour of Vermont Discovery – September 23-28, 2018


This classic tour is now offered self-guided at a significantly reduced cost. If you feel comfortable on a biking adventure without full-time tour guides, this might be the tour for you.

Monday we ride through quiet farmland with magnificent westerly vistas of the Adirondack Mountains. We ride along Lake Champlain and cross into New York to visit the Chimney Point Historic Site (great place for a picnic!). Those with extra energy this day might opt to take the ferry across Lake Champlain and visit historic Fort Ticonderoga. Tuesday we enjoy spectacular vistas, a swim at Branbury State Park, an optional ride up to Brandon Gap, and then an evening in Brandon, a village of tree-shaded streets and a marvelous mix of Federal, Greek Revival and Victorian homes. Wednesday includes a stop along the shores of beautiful Lake Dunmore before arriving in Middlebury, our home for the last two nights. Plan to arrive early enough to enjoy beer, wine and cider tasting at the Otter Creek Brewery and the Woodchuck Cidery and to take a leisurely stroll exploring this handsome town and the campus of Middlebury College. On Thursday, we cross the Pulp Mill Covered Bridge, pass the Morgan Horse Farm, and follow the Otter Creek out to beautiful Button Bay on Lake Champlain, where we enjoy spectacular views across the lake to the majestic Adirondack Mountains. Our last day’s ride takes us through the Middlebury College campus into lush rolling farmland while passing some of Vermont’s nest apple orchards before we arrive back in Shoreham.

WHAT’S INCLUDED: 5 nights lodging, 5 breakfasts, 4 dinners (you are on your own for dinner one night in Middlebury), maps, directions, luggage transfers, bicycle and helmet.

Final payment due 60 days prior to your tour (personal check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover)

*Single Travelers: A limited number of guaranteed private rooms are available on most tours at an additional cost. This cost is indicated on each tour page.

Single travelers willing to share a room will be charged an amount no greater than 50% of the guaranteed private room rate and this will be fully refunded if you end up sharing a room with another traveler. This cost is also indicated on each tour page.

The reason for these additional charges is that most of our inns charge Discovery Bicycle Tours by the room regardless of the number of occupants, but our per person tour rates are based on double occupancy. Therefore it costs Discovery Bicycle Tours substantially more to have only one occupant in a room. We do want to encourage single travelers and therefore absorb half of the additional cost to us when you end up in a private room without requesting it. You will note that on some tours there is no additional charge and this is because the inns on those tours are not charging Discovery Bicycle Tours.
