It's a volunteer run event - that's part of the fun. Volunteers help with the behind the scenes activities, and the onstage activities too. Each volunteer signs up for a few hours of logistical work during the event day.
Food. Man a rest stop, the grill, the salad bar, etc. Fun chance to meet and chat with all the riders.
Set up or take down. Good if you want to volunteer while also doing the ride.
Saturday set up (signs and arrows). Help the day ahead of time, laying out the course. Study up to go faster.
Volunteers each get a free registration to the event, to use themselves or to give to whomever. A princely reward.
Give us a shout if interested!
lo * gi * sti * cian: While not technically a timed race, the event volunteers are considered to be real winners.

"I did the Central VT ride last summer. It was one of the coolest and most challenging rides I did all year (I did about 15 gravel grinders last year). I’ll be back again this year! Awesome event!" ~ John Spinney, QT2 Systems
Training Specialist and Ultra Coach
It's a classic ~ among the best one day bike tour routes in New England. Mountain vistas backdrop farmers haying in the fields. White steepled churches, historic barns. Waterfalls and lakes. The scenery is unbroken. And you are free to concentrate on the beauty because it is a fully supported ride with convenient food stops, well marked courses, and nationally certified bike patrol on duty. All wrapping up with a hearty, homestyle, picnic dinner. We invite you to join us next June at Morse Farm in East Montpelier, Vermont.
- New for 2017:
- * flexible start; sign in and ride anytime from 8 - 10
- * for the long tour, a 4th food stop (in East Calais, mile 17.8)
- * and a Morse Farm Maple Creemee for every registrant (what the heck)
