Biking Vermont

Mountain or Road

Traveling from village to village on two wheels in Vermont is a fun adventure--just grab one of the many biking guides to Vermont and go.  Vermont’s extensive network of lightly-trafficked small highways and town roads provide an ample supply of bicycle routes and tours. For the more adventurous, Vermont's gravel roads and old logging trails can’t be beat, and Vermont has some of the best mountain biking in the east. Choose from single track or downhill, trek through forests and meadows, or explore an abandoned granite quarry. 

If you are planning a Vermont bicycling itinerary, please consider the Vermont Department of Tourism’s Bike Friendly Roads & Trails Map or the Vermont Agency of Transportation’s Bicycle Priority Corridors Map. The two maps highlight many of the most popular bicycling roadways, routes and trails in Vermont. Street cyclists can also visit the VTRans Street Sweeping Progress Map for updates on which Vermont roadways have been recently swept. Mountain bikers are encouraged to visit the Vermont Mountain Bike Association’s Trail Conditions page for updates. For more cycling resources, visit Bicycle New England.
