Bicycle Tour of Lake Champlain Islands 3rd Annual

Trip dates: Friday, July 21, 2017 10:00 AM to Sunday, July 23, 2017 3:00 PM

All the charm of Lake Champlain Islands in 35-80 flat miles over scenic Vermont pavé roads (read: some unpaved sections), country stores, Adirondack & Green Mountains views, & dips in refreshing lake water.

The trip has all ingredients for relaxing yet active weekend: several stops at state parks, scenic views at every turn, multiple stops for locally fresh food, & frequent beach stops for opportunities to dip in the water. Plan on three days of riding: Friday through Sunday.

On one of the days we will cross into Canada-bring your passport & appropriate visa for non US citizens.

The Inn at the Isles is rustic with basic amenities & services, similar to a two-star motel. Food is fresh, water view is beautiful, & hosts are friendly. Participants can make their own alternate lodging arrangement nearby. Options include a more luxurious option at Ruthcliffe Lodge or group hostel at Old Schoolhouse. Trip registration & nominal fee are still required.
