Touring, ‘unofficial’, Fall-4

In April and October we normally have leaderless rides from a set location.  We will not be holding these rides this year due to Covid-19 but if anyone is interested in leading a ride please contact Phyl@together.net .

Informal touring ride. Touring rides in April and October do not have assigned leaders and do not have a planned route. Due to often unpredictable weather during those months, distance and route is determined by whomever shows up. Only the start/meeting site is predetermined. There may be one or more groups and/or destinations.

No valid “end” times are listed for touring rides because of differences in riders’ speed and distance traveled.

Stone Walls and Solar Farms

Gravel Ride: Stone Walls and Solar Panels – This scenic 30-mile (M) ride goes from Underhill to Cambridge on mostly dirt and gravel roads past a myriad of old stone walls and not so old solar panels. Our midway point is the store at the end of Upper Pleasant Valley Road in Cambridge. If there is sufficient interest, at the end of the ride we can add an extra seven miles roundtrip to Poorhouse Pies in Underhill to share a delicious treat.

Century Day

Three rides, all following the same route for the first 25 miles with a food stop in Bristol.  The Metric Century is 62 miles (M) via Bristol and Vergennes.  The full Century is 100 miles (S) traveling down to the Crown Point Bridge and returning through the Champlain Valley.  Those looking for an extra challenge can do the Double Gap Century which is 113 miles and includes the Middlebury and Appalachian Gaps.

Pleasant Valley Pedaling

Pleasant Valley Pedaling – The 53-mile route (M/S) travels through Jericho into Underhill and then via Pleasant Valley Road into Cambridge with gorgeous views of Mt. Mansfield and farm fields.

East Montpelier-Calais Country Ride

Enjoy a scenic 34-mile (S) tour with over 3,400 feet of climbing through the countryside of Hilary’s childhood stomping grounds of East Montpelier and Calais as we explore lovely, fun, and HILLY gravel roads in the area. Maple Corner Community Store is at mile 24 and the Adamant Coop at mile 29. The route is a figure eight so it is possible to do a 20 mile ride that is also lovely, hilly, and passes both stores  Leaders will be riding retired mountain bikes with low tread tires and will do the long loop.

Waitsfield and Waterfalls

Enjoy a scenic tour through the countryside of Waitsfield and Warren with a visit to Moss Glen Falls south of Warren (not the one in Stowe). Turn around at the falls for a 35 mile (M) ride or continue up Middlebury Gap with a stop at Texas Falls before turning around for a 60 mile (M/S) ride.  A stop at the Warren Store is always popular and the general store in Hancock provides an additional respite for those on the long ride. 

Covered Bridges of Franklin and Lamoille County

The hilly 41-mile loop (M) goes through Eden and Johnson, while the 55-mile ride (M/S) passes more covered bridges in Montgomery Center, returning through Bakersfield. The Blue Bike Café in Montgomery is a great stop for espresso and pastries.
