Come out of your winter hibernation for a fully supported 36.9 mile gravel grinder covering (almost) all of the amazing dirt roads Central Vermont has to offer. It's not easy, but it's definitely worth it. For those hesitant to depart their winter hibernation, there is a shorter 21.3 mile loop that will still give you plenty of dirt, fun, and cow sitings.
As always, we will have a fully stocked aid station in Adamant with everything you could ever hope for while out on an April gravel ride with all of your friends!
Join us after for a massive parking lot party! Your entry includes delicious food and beer tickets to help you cap off an amazing Saturday!

This event has been organized to celebrate the life and contributions of Richard Tom, a cyclist whose life tragically ended in April of 2015. Richard dedicated his life to sharing his passion for “all things bicycle”. His friends have formed a foundation in his name, the Richard Tom Foundation ("RTF"), and we have organized this ride in memory of Richard. This ride will be staged at Cochran's Ski Area. There are several road routes and two mountain bike options be available.
All rides will finish at the Cochran Ski Area, where food and beverages will be waiting, thanks to Dakin Farms, Stone Corral Brewery and other food and beverage sponsors. Please come join the fun and support RTF! Due to somewhat limited parking at Cochran's please carpool and also consider parking in Richmond and making a short ride to Cochran's Ski Area for the event.
Through this event, RTF will promote the health benefits of cycling and encourage the spirit of fun and adventure that was a significant part of Richard's life. We are expecting several participants in our Velo Village to help promote and share the cycling lifestyle.
Proceeds will support children's cycling programs and camps (including Little Bellas and Catamount Family Center's mountain biking camp), will support legislative efforts led by Local Motion, and a variety of other efforts to promote bike safety and adventure on bikes.
Participants in the Richard's 70 and Richard's 30 are welcome to participate in the Children's Ride and the Family Ride at no additional cost
Please also consider a tax-deductible contribution to the RT Foundation. The board of the RT Foundation will use your funds wisely to support a variety of efforts to improve the safety of our roads and make cycling available and children who might not otherwise have an opportunity to experience the fun and adventure that happens on a bike.
