The combination of paved and unpaved roads (bike trails) winding by historic communities and picturesque countryside provides the perfect setting for day-long Vermont backroad biking exploration. The Central Vermont bike tours are designed for the enjoyment of the recreational cyclist. However, Central Vermont is hilly, so a reasonable level of fitness is required to truly enjoy Vermont bicycle touring.

Each Vermont bike touring route is laid out to return the rider to his or her starting point. These Central Vermont bicycle trails range from 4.5 to 25.7 miles. Some have optional extensions, and creative minds can combine bike trails and Central Vermont bike paths or design their own from the Vermont bike maps provided.

From Montpelier’s historic downtown and capitol district to the secluded meadows of the Mad River Valley, these Vermont biking tours provide an ever changing backdrop for your travels. They are creatively designed for you to enjoy or prepare for upcoming Vermont bike races.

Along the way, you will encounter steepled churches, country stores, and dairy farms. You’ll pass forests, streams, and quiet ponds. You’ll be able to stop and enjoy apple cider, maple candies, Vermont cheddar, or hand-dipped chocolates.
