    ACORN's Tour de Farms

    tour_de_farms.jpgACORN's Tour de Farms is one of Vermont’s oldest cycling farm tours and follows the pastoral landscape of the Champlain Valley.

    This year's Tour has two routes: its flagship 30-mile route and a brand new, family-friendly 14-mile route. Over 25 local farms, food businesses and restaurants will be participating. Sample everything from organic fruit smoothies to grass-fed beef to Vermont's famous cheddar cheese!

    A Farm Bus is available for those who choose not to ride a bike and a concierge Farm Van will deliver purchased farm products to the Bristol Rec Field so riders don't need to carry extra weight with them. Share in the experience of sampling delicious, farm fresh food while enjoying the beauty of the landscape from the comfort of the bus.

    Stay for the Tour de Farms After Party; we'll have live music from The Doughboys, a food truck, free Farmhouse ice cream for all riders, and drinks for sale by Shacksbury Cider, Hogback Mountain Brewery and Savouré Soda.

    Vermont Challenge

    The Vermont Challenge is one of the "must ride" cycling tours of New England.  The Vermont Challenge fits a niche between the many one-day rides and the high end week long packaged tours. It's the best of both rolled into 4-day tour. Of course you can chose to ride less than all four days, but to truly experience the beauty of Vermont and this event, we strongly urge you to ride with us for 2 or more days. Join us for our very special 6th year anniversary and some new twists and turns.

    The Vermont Challenge offers daily routes that are both challenging routes for elite recreational cyclists as well as tamer routes for all riders. The routes traverse Southern and Central Vermont over four days including a signature Gran, Medio and Piccolo Fondo for all riders on Saturday. Visit The Vermont Challenge website to learn more!
