The VeRmont Challenge
top 10 must do rides in 2017
Under Armour & MapMyRide include The Vermont Challenge in its TOP 10 MUST DO RIDES in 2017!

The Vermont Challenge offers up to four glorious days of riding with cyclists from across the U.S. and Canada. You’ll ride through the picturesque countryside, cross covered bridges, and into historic villages of south and central Vermont. The Vermont Challenge fits a niche between the many one-day rides and those high-end, seven-day packaged tours. It’s the best of both rolled into one four-day challenge. Of course you can chose to ride less than all four days, but to truly experience the beauty of Vermont and this event, we strongly urge you to ride with us for two or more days.

Adventure Cyclist
February, 2017
"But grind up that climb I did, passing another radar detector just a few hundred feet from the finish. Though my lungs were stripped of breath, I couldn’t help laughing out loud as the thing blinked a paltry '5' in big red lights. There was no threat of a speeding ticket as I crossed the finish line to the sound of ringing cowbells." Read more.

"The roads are fantastic compared to where I live," says Justin Karbel, an elite rider from Connecticut. "The accommodations are wonderful and the people are all so nice."

"All you have to do really is show up in your bike shorts and you're surrounded by instant best friends." Read more.
