The Finish from The Adirondack Trail Ride
First at the finish to a single cow bell sound after completing a grueling 550+ mile, solo, self-supported bikepacking adventure through the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. I completed the route in 4 days; which meant a lot of night riding along with very little rest! I had an amazing experience. It helped me grow as a cyclist, but more importantly, I learned more about myself and what I can accomplish.
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!
We put priority on riding Vermont's pristine, quiet
and low traffic dirt roads.
