Welcome to the Vermont Challenge

The 4th annual Vermont Challenge is the premier bicycle tour that traverses Southern Vermont over 2, 3 or 4 days including the signature Saturday 8/15 Gran, Medio & Piccolo Fondo for all riders, presented by our title sponsor Stratton Mountain Resort!

For our 4th year we’ve created something very unique & exciting!

  • On Saturday (8/15) the highlight of our ride that day will be winding up a four-mile climb to Stratton Mountain Resort for the only mountain resort-top Gran Fondo finish east of the Continental Divide.
  • In addition to the 100 mile Gran Fondo, the Vermont Challenge will offer: Medio (65 miles) and Piccolo (26 miles) Fondos so the entire family & other club members can join in the fun!
  • In addition, we'll be creating a Bicycling & VT Recreation, Food and Arts Festival in conjunction with our title Sponsor Stratton Mountain on Saturday 8/15 at Stratton's village!
  • Manchester and Stratton become our home bases for all four days so you can stay in the same hotel for the duration of the tour.
  • We’re offering shorter tamer routes each day in addition to our tough challenging routes so your friends, significant others and club members can join in all the fun!
  • You'll have access to your cars for the multitude of activities you can enjoy on your own each afternoon.
