    Vermont Mountian bike Festival

    5th ANNUAL VERMONT MOUNTAIN BIKE FESTIVAL BRINGS MOUNTAIN BIKE ENTHUSIASTS TO WATERBURY, VERMONT

    Join us for an exciting two day event including: group rides, skills clinics, kidsí activities, industry expo, bike demos, shuttles, BBQ, beer garden, and raffles.

    The Stowe Mountain Bike Club (SMBC) in conjunction with the Vermont Mountain Bike Association bring you the the 5th Annual Vermont Mountain Bike Festival (VMBF). Join us at the Ice Center in Waterbury, Vermont, on July 14th and 15th, 2012. The VMBF is Vermontís premier mountain biking event, bringing riders together to enjoy Vermontís finest trails as well as industry manufacturers and retailers with booths and demo products. Proceeds from the 2012 event will benefit projects at the Perry Hill trail system in Waterbury, Vermont.

    For two jam-packed days, the VMBF will be home to exciting events catering to beginner and expert cyclists alike. VMBF is family friendly and will also offer kidsí rides lead by Wheels Around Waterbury, a local summer camp that teaches kids mountain biking skills. Local shops and industry vendors will be on hand to share their products and provide demos.

    This yearís festival will be catered by Market Cafe with local food being offered a la carte all day Saturday and a BBQ plate dinner Saturday evening. Dinner is included as part of the registration cost. And even better news, a beer garden is in the works, replete with discounted draft beer!

    The mission of the VMBF is to celebrate mountain biking in Vermont by bringing people together to participate in recreational mountain bike events, and a festival to bring the community together to advocate an active outdoor lifestyle and promote the mountain biking trails and riders in Vermont.

    Man, I would love to make it this year. This particular weekend has been occupied for the past 5 years, but this year it's open. 200 mi each way though, I'll give it some hard thought.

    It is a great camping area that has a lot of activities to do in and around it, espcially if you are coming with anyone who may not be biking.

    How much novice terrain will be available? My GF is just getting into mtn. biking (ridden 1/2 dozen times so far) and needs lots of seat time on novice/advanced novice trails and some skills clinics/instruction.

    Would it be worth it for us coming from MA for the weekend? Me, I love the gnarl but I'm happy to poke along with her all day and just be out riding.

    We will have beginner and novice rides available. There will also be a Sunday womens only clinic put on by the Dirst Divas. the clinic will be about two hrs and depending on the group they may go out and do a trail ride. that would give you a chance to go do a solo or guided ride on the Waterbury trails.

    If you have never been to the area I think it would be worth it to come up for the weekend do some riding and see what else the area has to offer.

    Any other questions let me know.

    Hope you can make it up. Was at NEMBA fest myself. The VT Mtn Bike festival will be more of the same as NEMBA Fest.
