    Central Vermont Cycling Tour (Fundraiser) - June 27, 2010

    The Cross Vermont Trail Association invites you to participate in the Central Vermont Cycling Tour to raise funds and support for the Cross Vermont Trail. Formerly known as the "VT Eco Tour", riders have a choice of 15, 33 and 60 mile rides on scenic gravel roads and trail walks at Morse Farm Maple Sugar Works.

    This event is also a way to sample some great Vermont food. Our feed stations and end of ride buffet will be packed with food from local farms, businesses and restaurants.

    The long ride (60 miles) starts at 9AM. This ride is 92% gravel/dirt, has well over 3,500' of climbing, and 3 feed stations. There is a competitive timed option for this ride, and rider times will be posted the day after the event on the event website.

    The medium ride (32 miles) starts at 10AM. This ride is 85% gravel/dirt, has 2,000' of climbing, and 3 feed stations.

    The short ride (15 miles) starts at 10AM. This ride is 75% gravel/dirt, is more appropriate for families with kids (no long climbs or descents), and 1 feed station.

    Registration includes great local food at a post-ride buffet, convenient feed stations/rest stops, and well-marked courses.

    Here's a LINK to the registration info. 20% discounts on registration before June 20, 2010. Children 12 or under ride for free. Venue opens at 7:30 AM. Registration is online or by mail, or you can register at Onion River Sports in Montpelier, VT.

    Bump for more info...

    The purpose of this event is to raise funds and awareness for the Cross Vermont Trail Association's (CVTA) trail projects in the Capital Region of Central Vermont.

    In the next 4 years the CVTA will build 2 miles of shared-use path and a 200-foot bicycle pedestrian bridge across the Winooski River in East Montpelier. The trail will connect three Capital Region towns and establish a safe route to school for students of Union 32 High School.

    The Cross Vermont Trail Association has raised $1 Million in Federal funds for this project, but needs to raise $200,000 in local funds and labor to complete funding. When you ride with us on June 27th, you will not only be having a great time, but you will be supporting a worthwhile cause.
