Climate Ride Vermont Gravel is arguably one of the best adventure routes in the northeast. It’s based on a legendary route created by Joe Cruz and Logan Watts from bikepacking.com.
We’ll pedal 250 beautiful miles over 6 days and climb nearly 22,000 feet. Nearly 70% of the route is off-road — ranging from well-maintained gravel roadways, to barely maintained Class IV dirt lanes, to super fun single-track. If you appreciate the challenge of gritty off-road riding, then this route is for you! There are hundreds of miles of amazing dirt roads in this small state and we’ll pedal the best of them.
We’ll start and end in vibrant Burlington, on the shore of Lake Champlain, and pass through quaint New England villages, rolling farmland, and forested trails — including scenic red barns and covered bridges. And if you like brews, you are in for a treat! As Vermont proudly holds the title of “Craft Beer Capital of the U.S.,” there will be ample opportunities along the route to relish your favorite liquids.
