The Long Trail Century Ride is an event established through a partnership of Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports and title sponsor Long Trail Brewery in Bridgewater Corners, plus Killington Resort, the Lookout Tavern, and many local businesses in the Killington region.

All courses start and finish at Long Trail Brewery, located on Route 4. The festivities continue for all after the ride at the brewery, where a BBQ menu will be prepared, live music and family entertainment, refreshments, and more will make this an event not to be missed.
