Tour de Kingdom 2015
Cycling and biking the back roads of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, the Eastern Townships of Quebec, and the North Country of New Hampshire.
Our Five Day June Tour has moved to the Fall - September 23-27, 2015. We’ve teamed up with Q Burke Mountain Resort, Kingdom Trails, and Burke Area Chamber of Commerce to offer up a great weekend challenge – A Two-Day, Back-to-Back, Double Century Gran Fondo as well as three days of guided rides on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. As always, we offer shorter 40 to 50 mile options on each day that capture the essence of the day but are welcoming to the more recreational cyclists. But if you are looking for a gut challenge on some great roads during the most stunning time of the year we’ve got some great days planned for you.
And we have two other days of biking that will totally psych the psyche:
Our Echo Lake Road Race & Swim offers a fine 5 or 10 mile bike race on dirt roads around the lake. You can do it as a stand-alone bike event, or you can do it as a stage biathlon or triathlon with a 5 or 10 mile run in the morning and/or a 1 or 3 mile swim in the afternoon. In short, make your own race, grab the day, and enjoy.
Kingdom Marathon, Doin’ the Dirt, in October was a big hit in 2014. Back country, “vista riddled” dirt roads, spectacular foliage, great pizza party, and hilarious shuttle back to the start offered up by Jay Peak Resort. We offer three biking options, 26.2 (Marathon), 13.5 (Half Marathon+), and 17 (Iconoclast). We offer the day as a running, biking or hiking event. Our 13 and 17 mile bike courses are terrific for kids and families.
