Our Roads Are Calling

We are excited to announce our all-new plan for the 2022 edition of the Vermont Challenge with two new, intimate tours: The Shires: August 18-21 (separate registration) & The Northeast Kingdom: September 10-12

Northeast Kingdom, Averill Lake: September 10-12

This new tour is located in northern Vermont just below of the Canadian border and just west of the New Hampshire border. The lodging for this tour is a large home right on Averill Lake in the most beautiful part of rural Vermont. Our host is our very own Barrack Evans of Battenkill Bikes. You'll enjoy an all-inclusive 3 days of relaxed touring, which includes all meals prepared by our chef. Enjoy afternoons right on the lake for swimming or kayaking. Rides will take us in and out of Canada, so a Passport is a MUST. Limited to 25 riders

Profiles of the Tours

In the Reimagining of the Vermont Challenge, it was perhaps the word "challenge" where we decided to focus our attention. Rather than conveying the notion of competitive cycling with insurmountable climbs and no opportunity for considering the beautiful surroundings of Vermont, we decided to apply the brakes (no pun intended) and create a Tour that specifically meets the needs of those wishing to see and enjoy Vermont – all from the saddle of their bikes. A strong social element was important to add to the new, 2022 reimagined Tours and so emphasis on a much smaller, intimate group was decided upon.

Setting Expectations

Each days' rides will be led by seasoned ride leaders who will shepherd you through the hills and valleys of Vermont. These rides are planned to be casual scenic tours where the actual "challenge" will be determining which country store is the most quaint or which vista is the most beautiful. It's important to know that these two tours will be ridden at a much slower pace than in the past in order to accommodate our riders expecting a true biking tour.
