It's a classic ~ among the best one day bike tour routes in New England. Mountain vistas backdrop farmers haying in the fields. White steepled churches, historic barns. Waterfalls and lakes. The scenery is unbroken. And you are free to concentrate on the beauty because it is a fully supported ride with convenient food stops, well marked courses, and nationally certified bike patrol on duty. All wrapping up with a hearty, homestyle, picnic dinner.
Raid – Our definition? A raid is a challenging route that includes a significant amount of packed-gravel riding and some major climbing segments. Some would call it a dirt road randonee, others a gravel grinder, we just call it a Raid. This is not a race. A properly prepared rider and bike of most any type can do this. Our guarantee – you will finish tired but feeling accomplished. It’s probably not for everybody, but you’re not everybody, right?
The long route will be around 50 miles , mostly gravel and will include a staggering amount of climbing. Yeah, it’s hard. Not up for that? We do offer a sweet 25-mile option! Mostly self-supported along the way, riders are treated to a lunch buffet and cold beer at the finish.

Let's clarify one thing, IRR is most certainly not a "road ride". Not sure what we mean? Take a few minutes to enjoy this video of IRR 3.0.
Here's what you CAN expect:
- The start isn't really in Stowe, but somewhere in mid to central Vermont.
- IRR 8.0 will the most Irreverent IRR to date. Take that for what it is.
- It will be a long day on/with your bike.
- The terrain will be challenging, to the fullest extent of the word.
- There are little to zero route markings.
- Planned water drops and aid stations may exist, but don't plan solely on them.
- Be prepared to go 3-4 hours between water sources, Vermont is graced with many general stores and remote gas stations. And friendly neighbors too.
- We welcome anyone that wants to attempt to finish IRR, you just have to do it on our terms.
- Believe the hype. It's not #hype.
- The longest it has ever taken someone to complete the route was 17.5 hours.

Queen City Bicycle Club is a group of female and non-binary people riding bikes to connect, protect, and empower people. Join us for our monthly ride (first Thursday of the month) around Burlington with glitter and a giant boombox on a bike trailer. Wear a helmet and rock the front and rear bike lights. Riders of all ages and experience levels are encouraged to come. No one is left behind! These rides are all about going slow and keeping the group together for maximum fun. We'll start at Old Spokes Home and wrap up at Zero Gravity Craft Brewery where each rider gets a drink ticket. Invite your friends! Join the Queen City Bicycle Club Facebook group for updates, conversation, and special rides and events.
Bike MS: Green Mountain Getaway is more than a ride. It's an experience grounded in camaraderie and marked by passion, inspiration, determination and pure enjoyment. It will be an experience you'll never forget, shared with new friends and old. 30, 60, and 100 mile route options.
Bike MS is the fundraising cycling series of the National MS Society and raises more money than any other cycling event for any other cause. To date, Bike MS cyclists, volunteers, and donors have raised more than $1.3 billion to stop MS in its tracks, restore what's been lost, and end MS forever.
Point to Point, powered by VSECU, is a fundraising event that benefits the Vermont Foodbank. The event includes cycling (riding) and running options. Riding options include 100-, 50-, and 25- mile road rides, a 20-mile trail bike ride, a 28-mile gravel grinder bike ride, and a half marathon trail run.
A (4) Day Charity Cycling event to raise money for AIDS/HIV vaccine research. 100% of donations go directly to UCLA AIDS Institute and Emory Vaccine Center. Our event this year will take place in beautiful Burlington Vermont. We will have a different route each day of varying difficulty. This is a fully supported ride with breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided during the event. We also have fully stocked pit stops every 12-20 miles and an awesome crew to help you along the way.
We look forward to having you join us for our 18th Event. To-date, we have raised nearly $1.7 million that has gone directly to the amazing researchers at Emory University and UCLA.
