The name says it all on this unique bike tour that gives travelers from all over a sampling of what makes Vermont so special. We’ll set out from our own backyard to enjoy pastoral cycling routes along quiet country roads past orchards, sweeping willows and family-run farms—all framed the foothills of the Green Mountains. Each day we’ll be treated to Vermont’s celebrated hospitality in quaint inns in a classic New England college town and another with its own provide harbor. When we’re not on our bikes, we’ll enjoy refreshing dips in pristine lakes and soak up the charm of the endearing towns of Addison County.
