    Hey, there's nothing on the website about the Bike fest....but as far as I have heard, with the basic colapse of VMBA following Patrick Kells speedy exit, SMBC is taking over the event, it's going to benefit the trails they care for including the Stowe and Waterbury Trails, it's going to be the thrid week in July with guided tours just as it has been. MTBVT has taken this event under it's wing and with their energy, I'm sure it's gonna continue to grow and improve. See you all there.

    Yes!!!! July 13th,14th,15th are the dates. I'm one of the crew of people working on the event. We're going to be launching the site/registration in a bit. SMBC has always been involved from what I understand but yes, VMBA (PK) did a huge amount of the work to make things happen. SMBC is taking this on and we are working with MTBVT.com which is awesome.
    So yes, guided trail rides for all levels. I have heard the "epic" is being planned as we speak so that should be great as usual. Look for some of the same great trail rides plus some riding skills clinics, kids rides, and a few surprises for this year. We're working things out and trying a few new things to help this grow and be a great festival for riders, guests, vendors and the general biking life.

    DaveVT - VMBA is still around an in a reorganization phase with PK leaving. Sounds like they have a few people stepping up to help carry things on.

    We have had a few planning meetings and should have registration and web site up and running by the end of the week.
