THE COURSE

In the spirit of "keep Vermont weird", Rooted Vermont will follow a mullet protocol: business in the front, party in the back. Two course lengths are offered of roughly 45 or 85 miles. The event will begin in Richmond, just outside Burlington, traveling south through the heart of the rugged Green Mountains towards Ripton. Featuring both silky smooth gravel and other sections titled Class 4 or Vermont pavé, there is challenging terrain for any ability of cyclist.

“RUN WHATCHA BRUNG”

What kind of bike is optimal for Vermont dirt roads? We like to say “run whatcha brung” because…bikes! But, if you’re looking for the ideal mix of speed, comfort and agility you could opt for a few combinations.

TRAILS FOR ALL

With an amazing network of mountain bike trails already a part of Cochran’s Ski Hill recreation, a new beginner network is in the works that will encourage riding skills for anyone looking to grow confidence in the sport. This ride will support those trail building efforts!

WHY VERMONT, WHY GRAVEL?

While gravel is the fastest growing category on two wheels, in Vermont — a state with more dirt roads than paved — it’s the way things have always been. There’s a simple, return to one's roots feel.
