    Muddy Onion Montpelier in Montpelier, VT

    Muddy Onion 2019

    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!
