The Vermont Gran Fondo (VTGF) was born from a famous bucket-list epic 4-gap ride known by the locals as the LAMB ride. LAMB comes from the names of 4 gaps (Lincoln Gap, Appalachian Gap, Middlebury Gap, and Brandon Gap), which, when combined into a single ride, can easily top 100 miles and over 10,000' of climbing.

For 2024, we will continue with our main courses: the Gran with 109 miles, 4 gap climbs, and 10,000' of climbing; the Medio with 80 miles, 2 gap climbs, and 5500' of climbing; the Piccolo with 40 miles, no gap climbs and 2700' of climbing. If you need something bigger, keep reading.

2024 is our 10th-anniversary event, so to celebrate, we are offering a new elevated challenge with a 6-gap course called Gran-X. The Gran-X course will cover the same roads and gaps as the Gran course but with 2 additional gap climbs, 40 miles, and 3500' of climbing for a total of 6- gaps, 140 miles, and 13500' of climbing. This course will be limited entry. 

After completing your chosen challenge, enjoy tunes, a quality meal, and local craft brews while swapping stories and watching the sunset.
