Burlington Biking Weekend Day 1: Burlington to South Hero, VT

Details

Join Jim and Neil for the first day of our Burlington, VT-area biking weekend, a moderate difficulty ride along Lake Champlain. We'll bike 30 mile round trip from the ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain in Burlington to the Allenholm Farm in South Hero and back. We'll be riding on the Burlington Bike Path and the Colchester Causeway. This route affords great views of Lake Champlain and the Green and Adirondack Mountains, and is entirely flat. While most (2/3) of our route is paved, 1/3 of it is hard-packed crushed limestone. Road bikers should be able to manage the unpaved portion of the route, but if you have concerns about this, consider renting or borrowing a hybrid (preferably) or mountain bike.

Bring a lunch and/or snacks, plenty of water, and perhaps a sweatshirt or light jacket. If there is interest, the group will have dinner at a restaurant in Burlington afterwards. We’ll discuss that during the trip.
Watch for updates about this ride in the coming weeks.

Directions to the meeting place will be provided to registered participants the week before the trip.

UPDATE 8/11- If temperatures on the day of the ride are conducive to swimming, we may stop at a beach along the trail to do so. If you're interested in participating, bring a bathing suit and towel, and perhaps a plastic bag in which to carry your wet suit after the swim.
