Rouse's Point Rouser

Grand Isle Ferry Parking Lot
Address: Grand Isle, VT Dock, Grand Isle, VT 05458, USA

Please register for the ride here.

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. The Social Ride will also be the long loop but at a slower pace. Please contact Donna if you plan to do the Social Ride. 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.

Please note the earlier, 8:15 am, meeting time for all rides on this date.

    This rolling hill ride (60 M/S) passes through Georgia and Milton before heading to St. Albans Bay for a break by the bay and over to Swanton. The shorter version (40 M) turns around after the break stop. This ride has a short stretch along the shore of the Lamoille River and a longer stretch along Lake Champlain. There is only one store on the ride and it is at the point where the two rides separate.
