On Sunday June 17, 2012, the Cross VT Trail Association invites you to participate in the Central VT Cycling Tour (formerly "VT Eco Tour"). Riders have a choice of 15, 33 and 60 mile rides on scenic gravel roads. Runners can run the 15 and 33-mile courses.
This event is also a way to sample some great Vermont food. Our feed stations and end of ride buffet will be packed with food from local farms, businesses and restaurants.
The long ride (60 miles) starts at 9AM. This ride is 92% gravel/dirt, has at least 6,000' of climbing, and 3 feed stations.
The medium ride (32 miles) starts at 10AM. This ride is 85% gravel/dirt, has 3,000' of climbing, and 3 feed stations.
The short ride (15 miles) starts at 10AM. This ride is 75% gravel/dirt, is more appropriate for families with kids (no long climbs or descents), and 1 feed station.
