Heart of the Islands Bike Tour To Take Place July 9th
What: Heart of the Islands Bike Tour When: 10am-4pm Saturday, July 9, 2011 Where: Begin and end at Snow Farm Vineyard, South Hero, VT Why: Support Local Motion and explore the best of the Champlain Islands by bike!
Riders will choose between a 10, 25, or 35-mile route to explore a variety of island farms, art studios, and vineyards. All routes include a mix of lakeside views and scenic back roads. Wide shoulders on paved stretches, smooth dirt roads, and mild hills make for enjoyable cycling. There will be plenty of places to fill water bottles, rest, and purchase lunch or snacks along the route. Bicycles will be available to rent with prior arrangements.
“Last year’s inaugural Heart of the Islands Bike Tour was a huge success. The Islands really are a perfect setting for a farm and art-inspired bike tour. We’re excited to be working with Local Motion again this year, and can’t wait to see some new farms and art studios by bike!”– Chris Howell, Vermont Farm Tours founder and guide.
