    Tour de Heifer

    15-30-60 mile Vermont Dirt Road Rides

    The Tour de Heifer's 60 and 30 mile challenge routes follow dirt roads with minimal pavement. Both entail significant elevation change -- that is, hill-climbing, and lots of it! Both the 30 and 60 mile challenges are loop rides with opportunities for bailing out.

    Families and people who love to walk will enjoy our guided hike to the top of nearby Round Mountain.

    All of the begin and end at Lilac Ridge Farm in West Brattleboro, and feature incredible views, farm and woodland terrain, New England villages (one with a covered bridge), and much more.

    What does it support?

    The Tour is a fund-raiser for Strolling of the Heifers -- The Tour helps support the Stroll's Farm to Table Apprenticeship Program, which teaches nutrition and culinary skills to underemployed community members, placing them in full-time, permanent positions at local restaurants and institutional kitchens.

    The EastSide Restaurant in Newport, VT

    Ride around Lake Memphremagog

    This ride is a favorite of the local Kingdom Velo Group - a guided tour around Lake Memphremagog with stops at Georgeville, Magog, The Abby and Masonville. This 80 mile route is a great way to "warm up"  for the kingdom game weekend, or do it as a stand-alone day ride and forget the rest! But, you better bring your passport! This ride involves International Travel and is just so much fun.

    Mike's Tikki Bar in East Burke, VT

    The Moose

    A 103 mile "timed event" with great prizes and wonderful spirit. The roads are smooth, wide and mostly repaved in recent years. Racers most obey all rules of the road, meaning you have to stop at all stop signs - but hey, there are only three in the 103 miles :)

    Irreverent Road Ride

    As wicked and wild as ever. The Irreverent Road Ride returns for its 7th! incarnation in the month of June, giving extended day light hours to traverse the back roads of Vermont's beautiful Green Mountains. Still the country's single most challenging dirt road ride, bar non. Unsanctioned, untimed, unruly and unpredictable.
