Ride the State of Vermont from Pownal to Derby
The start was a bit chilly but we were ready to go. 300 + miles in 5 days!
At Gravel Tours our mission is to provide adventurous cyclists looking to expand their love for riding with the expert guidance and knowledge of Vermont's quiet, less traveled roads and trails.
Your time to enjoy, time to rest, time to push yourself and time to be free from the daily grind is precious. We are here to provide all the logistics for a challenging and safe adventure, allowing you to immerse yourself in the experience. Whether it's a day trip, a fully supported Inn-to-Inn tour, or a self-contained wild camping expedition, we have you covered.
Gravel Tours is a complete, special guide service for 1 to 10 clients, keeping a very personal experience that can't be compared. If you are a veteran road cyclist looking to dip your feet in the challenge of climbing and descending the steep and varied dirt roads, we know the best routes. Simply taking a "stab" at navigating some of the more remote, class IV roads and town trails on your own can have you riding into someones yard or face-to-face with an unfriendly dog.
My routes combine the challenge, adventure, best places to eat and amazing scenery that embodies all that is Vermont!
The ride was on quiet dirt roads, through small towns and open vistas.
The State Capital!
