Vermont Overland Maple Adventure Ride

Vermont Overland Maple Adventure Ride

March 25 2018
West Windsor, Vermont, USA

An incredibly scenic gravel road circumnavigation of the Ascutney Basin area of Vermont area featuring a tucked-away, destination sugarhouse at full boil.  Climby, narrow, beautiful rural dirt roads with our trademark “Vermont Pave” sectors (unmaintained town roads).  Depending on the weather, the road conditions could range from frozen solid with sand spread on them to all-out mud season!  The beauty of this circuit is that, if at any time you feel like calling it a day, you can simply turn and head back to the start/finish.  Either way and any way, this ride will be an amazing and challenging adventure!

Sags:  We’ll have a refreshment stop at the featured sugar house with unparalleled maple-themed sag fare!  Try the best sports drink on the planet:  partially boiled sap!

Terrain/difficulty:  Climby, narrow, beautiful rural dirt roads with THREE SECTORS of “Vermont Pave” (unmaintained town roads).  Depending on the weather, the road conditions could range from frozen solid with sand spread on them to all-out mud season!  The beauty of this circuit is that, if at any time you feel like calling it a day, you can simply turn and head back to the start/finish.  Either way and any way, this ride will be an amazing and challenging adventure!

Pace:  Go at your own.  I can tell you that there will certainly be a front group going hard on the climbs, but there will also be plenty of folks riding steady to just enjoy the scenery.

Support:  We’ll have Vermont Overland’s now famous 4×4 support team out there.  Have a problem?  Just flag down one of the Jeeps or Land Rovers!

Bike:  Any.  Gravel, cyclocross and hard-tail mtb are optimal.  Fat bikes aired up are very nice as well.

Weather:  We’ll go in any weather, so plan on it and dress properly!

Post ride:  We’ll have some home-made snacks and perhaps a drop of Newhall Farms Ice Cider on hand back at the start/finish, but, after the ride, we’re all headed to Keepers Cafe  down on the corner of Baileys Mills Rd and Rt 106 for some beer and hot soup before heading home!
