Labor Day Biking Weekend

Sat, Sep 2 - Mon, Sep 4

Enjoy this long weekend and the last days of summer! Bring your bikes and enjoy beautiful Vermont scenery.

Cycling is the weekend's main activity, but it's a theme, not a formal agenda. 

You can also:   hike, kayak, explore the spa and the swimming pool at Sugarbush resort and much more!  Explore the town and its shops, have a leisurely lunch in Waitsfield or Warren, or just relax – all pastimes are welcome! Visit events, including the Mad River Valley Craft Fair:

Vitaly and Azita will lead groups of road cyclists. Bring the bike of your choice (road, hybrid, mountain) or rent one locally (rental shop information is provided below -- check ahead, as their quantity and selection may be limited). The route, distance, and type of biking will be up to self-organized groups. We'll provide cue-sheets for road options, with various amounts of mileage and vertical. Tentatively, these will include:

  • A longer day in the saddle covering 60-80 miles and several major Vermont gaps (5,000-7,000 feet of climbing)
  • A shorter option of 30+/- miles without major climbs (though keep in mind there is nothing really “flat” in VT)
  • An easy loop suitable for hybrids or leisure bikes (around 15 miles)
  • As for our photos , if someone has a mountain bike route in mind, let us know – we’ll gladly add it to the mix.

For more  information please contact Azita (who will also manage carpool arrangements) at laborday@swissskiclub.org
