Olympians, Tour de France stars head to Vermont

Ride & dine with the friendly pro riders July 16-17 at Riverside Farm. Less than 100 slots left.  

Join 500 lucky cyclists for a mass-start, fully-supported gran fondo led by the Colavita | Bianchi Professional Cycling Team. Work up your appetite over a challenging course with Ride With GPS timed segments, magnificent views, and aid station stops at area farms featuring locally-sourced treats. 

In rural Vermont, dairy farms, maple sugar houses, vegetable growers and vineyards characterize the region's agricultural diversity. The area is filled with hardworking farmers, but local Vermont agriculture faces more pressures than ever before and the state's iconic bucolic landscape is in danger.

All of the meals at the Farm to Fork Fondo - Vermont are the creation of Vermont Farms Catering and their talented Executive Chef Kevin Lasko.

Chef Lasko studied at the New England Culinary Institute and has long believed that Vermont, with its deep farm and dairy roots, stands at the important intersection of agriculture, cuisine and all things culinary.

Prior to establishing Vermont Farms Catering, Chef Lasko was the executive chef at the Park Avenue Seasons where he earned two stars from the New York Times, the "Best New York Restaurant" title from New York Magazine, and was named one of Forbes Magazine's "Best Eateries in New York City."
