Harpoon Point to Point Ride: Aug 12, 2017

Join the Vermont Foodbank in their fight against hunger by riding the Harpoon Point to Point!

Since its inception in 2002, the Harpoon Point to Point has become the Vermont Foodbank’s largest fundraiser of the year, raising over $1.3M to date.  Come ride 100, 50 or 25 miles on the road, or ride the 20-mile mountain bike trial at Mt. Ascutney. This well-supported ride will take you along rivers, over covered bridges and through Vermont’s incomparable landscape with its infinite shades of green.  A festive post-ride party awaits you when you cross the finish line at the Harpoon Brewery, complete with hot showers, delicious BBQ, live music and fresh beer, straight from the source!
