Event description

Description

This ride is organized by Queen City Bicycle Club as part of the WTF Bikexplorers ride series. If you're a W/T/F/GMC person eager to explore New England and you have experience bikepacking, this ride is for you!

There is a lot of interest in this ride. We'll try to include as many riders as is possible based on safety, campsite capacity, and other factors. For now there are 15 spots. Stay tuned for updates and changes.

Current the plan is:

Friday 7/26: Depart Burlington at 5pm and ride 27 miles on mostly paved and unfortunately well-trafficked roads to Underhill State Park (largely mellow with the exception of 900ft of climbing packed dirt in the last 2 miles to camp).

Saturday 7/27: Ride 55 miles of rolling gravel and backroads with 14 miles of flat rail trail in the middle of the day. Saturday offers endless swimming opportunities, general stores for snacks and water, and a final stop at the famed Hill Farmstead Brewery before riding to a nearby primitive campsite on Long Pond.

Sunday 7/28: Arrive in the crunchy hamlet of Glover mid-morning, and the group will split: those who want to attend Bread & Puppet's Sunday pageant at 3pm will have either arranged for rides home in the evening (shuttle maybe? TBD) or have plans to ride back on Monday, while advanced riders who wish to get back to Burlington that evening will embark on their 88 mile journey -- after a fresh donut at Red Sky Trading post, of course -- or plan to camp out Sunday night and return to Burlington on Monday.
