Vermont Two Centuries
Bike Tour Itinerary
Enjoy exceptional rural scenery, forests, lakes, rivers and farmland while cycling from northernmost Vermont near the Canadian border … to the southwest corner of the state. Rest and refresh yourself along the way and resupply yourself at country stores, local restaurants and/or with snacks and water from our support van.
DAY ONE | Arrival Day | Jay Peak Resort
On Friday, you meet at the Park-and-Ride in Manchester Vermont, and we shuttle you and your bike to Jay Peak Resort in the far northern reaches of the state. We provide road bikes for anyone who doesn’t bring their own, and we have a few extra road bikes along in case of major mechanical issues for any riders. Friday night you feast on a BBQ dinner slopeside on Jay Peak, with an option to take an aerial tram ride up the mountain and watch the sunset over Northern Vermont and Quebec.
DAY TWO | Distance: 100 miles | Terrain: Intermediate to Advanced | Middlebury Courtyard by Marriott
On Saturday, you begin the ride by descending from Jay Peak and head south and west around Vermont’s highest peak, Mount Mansfield. The town of Underhill is at mile 45 and provides a chance for a break. Then head on to Middlebury, Vermont, and the end of today’s century at The Otter Creek Brewery. Rest up at Middlebury’s Courtyard by Marriott, then get ready to head south again for another 100 miles on Sunday.
DAY THREE | Distance: 100 miles | Terrain: Intermediate to Advanced | Departure Day
Sunday’s century ride continues down the western side of the Green Mountains and winds through the farms and lakes of rural Vermont. Arrive in Dorset for a toast to your big accomplishment … a whole weekend of riding! We will have a van along with snacks and water for everyone, along with mechanical and SAG support.
