This is a fun intermediate run, with many 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 is a fun locals restaurant, offering a great eats.
