Vermont's Group Rides
Group rides serve as the backbone to the cycling industry. These rides are where beginners get into cycling, and elite riders connect with their local cycling community. All these rides are open to the public, and we encourage you to check them out. Before doing so, contact the ride leader or study the ride website to get more information. On the map, gravel/road rides display as yellow bikes and MTB rides show as brown mountains. Click on each ride to view its info.

Tours for every skill level & ability level.
The key to having a great cycling experience lies in having it catered specifically to your skill and ability level. Our tours and instruction are designed for beginners to advanced cyclists and everyone in-between, but the goal remains the same: creating positive experiences through cycling.
In short, we want these experiences to be all about you. Our passion is making people happy. It’s that simple.
At Gravel Tours our mission is to provide adventurous cyclists looking to expand their love for riding with the expert guidance and knowledge of Vermont's quiet, less traveled roads and trails.
Gravel Tours is a complete, special guide service for 1 to 10 clients, keeping a very personal experience that can't be compared. If you are a veteran road cyclist looking to dip your feet in the challenge of climbing and descending the steep and varied dirt roads, we know the best routes. Simply taking a "stab" at navigating some of the more remote, class IV roads and town trails on your own can have you riding into someones yard or face-to-face with an unfriendly dog.
Ted's podcast captures the essence of riding for fun. He interviews successful event promoters, business owners and athletes. It's a great source of inspiration to get you out the door.
Peter and Ansel travel around Vermont and capture it through video. Their vlog teaches you new things, makes you laugh and inspires you to do more things atop your gravel bikes.
The Gravel Ride is a cycling podcast where we discuss the people, places and products that define modern gravel cycling.
