Vermont Gran Fondo

The Vermont Gran Fondo traverses four gaps with 11,000+ feet’ of climbing back and forth across the spine of the Green Mountains. If the climbs don’t take your breath away, the views will. Rush downhill, rest up as you ride through verdant green valleys, pass working farms on your way to the next challenging ascent. Sound daunting? Try  the Medio Fondo with 6,000+ feet of climbing over 64 miles. 

The Lincoln Gap features the steepest (24%) paved mile in the U.S!
