NEW! 2022 THE GREEN MOUNTAIN GRINDER
Distance: Approx 145 miles Tires: Knobbies Pavement/Dirt: 40/60
Difficulty: Intermediate Return Time: 3:00 PM
This is a brand spankin’ NEW intermediate run, with many fun challenge sections perfectly geared for fun-seeking intermediate riders. Designed by Jesse P, lead guide and local expert, and Victoria Z, NEBDR codesigner and WRAD cochair.
This tour showcases some of the best mixed terrain that Vermont has to offer. Expect rocks, mud, hills, and general fun in the woods (worse more fun if it rains). Knobbies are a must. If you are PROFICIENT off-road, this will be fun on a big bike. It’s a medium-length ride that packs a lot into a ride that gets you back to TTDD “earlyish” (by approx 3pm). You’ll find yourself on great dirt roads that are new to TTDD, some necessary pavement, and it features 4+ challenge sections that had us smiling in our helmets. (There are workarounds for all of them). It’s a solid intermediate ride (not too nutso, while not a good choice for those not-yet solid dirt riders).
The lunch stop will be at a great drive-in with lots of outdoor seating.
(NOTE: We’ve saved this for WRAD participants who are intermediate riders +, allowing them to sign up 48 hours prior to other participants (May 9 at noon, versus May 11, noon for everyone else).
Why? Because there was a tech glitch on the WRAD package, preventing them from signing up until May 9. So, WRAD gets first dibs on this until May 11).
