Central Vt Cycle Tour is now TOUR DE CREEMEE.

Big update for the Central Vermont Cycling Tour. We're thrilled to announce Onion River Outdoors (ORO), Montpelier's iconic bike and outdoor gear shop, has stepped up to be the new lead organizer for the ride. Keep in touch with ORO and all their events at the store website. Thanks to ORO for taking the baton on the Cycle Tour and keeping things rolling into the future!

The folks at ORO say: "This gorgeously scenic ride begins and ends at Morse Farm, home of the scrumptious maple creemee, so we have redubbed this ride Tour de Creemee. Everything else will stay the same from the three routes - 15, 30 and 60 miles - to the convenient rest stops, the well marked routes and finally the wonderful, local picnic, including, of course, a celebratory creemee! The soul of this ride remains true as ORO will continue to support the mission of Cross Vermont Trail Association with proceeds. Join us for this family friendly, community oriented ride and experience the magic of cycling the most beautiful gravel roads in Vermont on a summer's day!"

The day of the event. You can register and pay (cash or check) at the event sign in table. Registration opens 7:30 AM and closes 9:30 AM. You can sign in and start your ride anytime between 7:30 and 9:30.

Early registration is $60 per adult; starting June 11 registration is $75 per adult. Kids, and teens, age 18 and under ride free.

Each participant should fill out and sign their own registration form - even if someone else is paying for them (or if there is no fee.) We need a separate piece of paper per person because the registration form doubles as the event waiver.

Every registration includes:
Signed up to bike a supported, well marked course (either short, medium or long) on scenic rural backroads.
All you can eat great food at convenient rest stops and end of ride picnic.
And a maple creemee (what the heck.)

Starting in late Spring, you can also pick up blank registration forms at area bike shops. If you don't see the registration and info fliers for the CVCT at your local shop, tell them to give us a shout and we'll make sure they get more.

Sunday - June 25, 2023

"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.

Helping to Create a Family Friendly Greenway Across Vt!

The Central Vermont Cycling Tour started in 2002, as the EcoTour. And we still ride in support of healthy, active kids.

The tour is a fundraiser for the Cross Vermont Trail Association. We are working to build community paths - connecting
neighborhoods, schools, and parks - with the ultimate goal of a connected statewide network.

You are helping get kids (and all of us, frankly) off of the shoulder of Rte 2 and onto a path in the woods, in East Montpelier. Finally the pieces are coming together for miles of new trail and bridge over the Winooski River. It's going to be a big job - and a great trail!
