Get off the main drag and venture onto some of Vermont’s most scenic hidden byways with your bicycle. You’ll see parts of the Green Mountain state that most don’t experience. Rolling hills, mountain views, historic farms, and peaceful pasture lands are punctuated by Vermont’s pristine streams and lakes.
The number of routes and loops that can be put together from our area is almost endless. One can find challenging mountain gaps or nice rolling farmland to ride. Distances can be as varied as the riders. The Killington-Pico Club has weekly rides. Please check the club website here. www.kpccvt.org
