A tour of pretty villages – a 60-mile (M/S) ride across the Canadian border.  Bring your passport or other required customs document. Also, you must complete the ArriveCAN app information within 72 hrs of entry. See ArriveCAN website for full and most recent information: https://www.canada.ca/en/border-services-agency/services/arrivecan.html).  If you are denied access into Canada, you will need to return to the ride start on your own because the ride leader(s) will continue on with the group. We’ll stop in Mystic for food and pass many farms along the way.  There is some dirt – about 4 miles total - and a couple of hills. A short version of the ride breaks off after Mystic and goes 45 miles.

    The mostly flat 60-mile (M) loop heads up from Grand Isle over the Rouse’s Point Bridge and down through scenic, low-traffic, lakeside roads in New York and returns via the Grand Isle Ferry. The short ride (50 miles – E/M) circles Isle LaMotte and returns on the Vermont side.  Bring money for the Ferry ride back to VT.

    Please park in the ferry lot, not the fishing access lot. Let the attendant know that you will be taking the ferry in one direction.

    Those coming from the Burlington area may consider carpooling. Weather permitting, all leaders may do the longer version of the ride.
