Harpoon's Point to Point

Road Biking


Traveling from village to village in Vermont is fun adventure. Cool drinks or a freshly made sandwich at a general store.  A robust dinner and a comfy bed at a country inn.  

Vermont villages are spaced an easy pedaling-distance apart and our extensive network of lightly-trafficked, farm to market back roads provide a virtually inexhaustible supply of on-road bicycle routes. Add to this an abundance of friendly country inns and intimate beds and breakfasts, as well as clean, lakeside campgrounds, and you have a recipe for a bicycling adventure.

Several well-established cycling organizations provide everything from fully supported tours to planning and reservation services for touring on your own.

Lake Champlain Bikeways has designated routes along the lake with connections into New York State and Quebec.

Riding Your Way

• Novice Riders - Look for easy cycling over flat to gently rolling terrain in our valleys, or along Vermont's Rail Trails and Bike Paths. 

• Intermediate Cyclists - Check out the rolling to hilly terrain in the Taconic and Vermont Plateau regions of the state. In general, the Champlain Valley, Northeast Kingdom and the north-south valleys along the mountains provide this moderate terrain.

• Advanced Cyclists -  Find challenging climbs and down hills along the length of the Green Mountains, including the Appalachian Gap, Smugglers' Notch and the Middlebury and Brandon Gaps.
