    Trying to talk my buddies into doing this. Just joined VMBA so I should put that to use eh? How are the Ascutney Trails? I've only ridden KT. I assume its an all around good time party atmosphere.

    Trails are sweet singletrack, flowy with some rocks and roots mixed in. You will have a blast. Great festival atmosphere. We make the trip from PA. Register now.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    I mean honestly that was a stupid question...I haven't found a trail I don't love in some way.

    But it's awesome to hear folks from down there come up. Now if only I can get my friends in gear.

    Forgot to give a link to registration. Pre-registrants get a t-shirt. Go to vmba.org and pull down from "Events".

    Hey, Does anyone know if there is a one day option for the festival? I would love to drive over and camp Saturday evening and do a ride on Sunday, unfortunately have to work Saturday...

    Yes, there is, but I think it starts Sunday morning, since a bunch of stuff is going on Saturday night, band, BBQ, Bike Olympics, bonfire, etc. All the onsite camping will be taken by then, so I'd reserve an offsite campsite (Ascutney State Park, Wilgus State Park, Google for private campground.)

    We're posting a schedule soon.

    Thanks for the telling me about the signs. I don't notice them gone, 'cause I usually know where I am. Someone's been getting their jollies by ripping them out. It's always on the double tracks and they leave tracks - looks like two fat bikes who always ride side-by-side about 3 feet apart. Hmmmm.

    Don't have to look too far given the ATV vote... 2 fat bikes with a motor. Unfortunately there is always some one who does not like What You Are Doing! National Forest, State Parks, Town Forests, Resort land.....someone does not like it.. unless they are making money doing it...Does not affect the great Vt. Fest coming up...great Venue and fun, varied riding....built for Bikers...Bikers every way-uh... B...

    Finally signed up. Nabbed a camping spot at the venue. I assume its "pull yer car up and toss the tent out" sort of camping? Considering we are all under 30 and likely will stumble to sleep I don't care what I have for accommodations.

    Next question, if my buddies show up before me (highly likely, cubicle life is not conducive to fun) can they get on the spot? Since I signed up and paid for it.

    Thanks.

    I got to agree. Got there friday around 11 and went straight out for a ride. 3 days of great riding coupled with a fantastic festival feeling. And you couldnt beat ice cream after dinner. Bike olympics were fun as usual and some sweet raffle prizes. Really stinks having to drive back to PA togo to work. Another great festival. Have to thank jim, eric, collin and all the others who volunteer their time and effort to make this a success. Cant wait for next year.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    My festival recap

    I was a bit apprehensive because I asked a couple of friends to go but no dice so I went solo. Well it turned out great because it is all about the ride and the ride was superb. Many thanks to the Vermont Mountain Bike Association crew for the well designed trail system, and for all the sweat it took to build it. Thanks to all the volunteer ride leaders too, good times. The organizers and sponsors worked like crazy all weekend, it was non stop.
    I made some friends, hi to Ronen, Claire, Kurt, Celine, Jim and Joe G.'s Pennsylvania crew.
    Two pictures attached. First is some of the Demo Bikes, there was a whole nother' row of other mfg,s including Kona and Ibis and sorry to the others I cannot remember. Second is the ride board with a ham! VT MTB Fest July 11-13th-006.jpgVT MTB Fest July 11-13th-007.jpg

    Wow. One bee sting, countless beers, some New England gnar, some New England flow, and a hell of a lot of fun. Big thanks out to VMBA and STAB for running a super sweet weekend.

    And to everyone who put up with that overweight hairy flat lander from cape cod on his SS.
