KEYS TO THE KINGDOM
Distance: approx 165 miles
Return Time: 4:00pm
*NOT a Passenger friendly ride
The Keys To The Kingdom (aka The Northeast Kingdom Tour) is a butt-kicker, on lots of challenging dirt, and is recommended for less-than 800cc bikes with knobbies. Riders should be ready to ride rocky, muddy trails – some with moderate inclines and descents – into the Northeast Kingdom, the most sparsely populated region of Vermont. Designed by Eric Milano of MotoVermont.
The National Geographic Society listed the Northeast Kingdom (NEK) as “the most desirable place to visit in the USA!” With 2000 sq miles of mountainous wilderness it’s a treat to the eye and also makes for great ADV riding. No one knows the NEK better than this tour’s lead guide, Eric Milano (one of the authors of the NEBDR). Eric and his expert team will lead this unforgettable ride.
Lunch (provided) will be at a private maple syrup farm famous for their delicious meat and vegetarian pies plus farm fresh provisions such as syrups, butters, produce and meats – all sourced on site or very close by. For lunch, we will enjoy some of their incredible pies, savory and sweet, along with salads and cold soft drinks. If you bring some cash you’ll want to haul a few items back to camp because they have some great food treats on hand!
A word to the wise: Riders should be intermediate or above and have bikes with full knobby tires (TKC80, D606, etc.). 800cc and below recommended. If you’re on anything larger, you should consider yourself an expert rider. This ride is NOT 2-up friendly.
Here’s your chance for a unique, exciting ride. Don’t miss it!
