This is your weekend to have fun and break a sweat at VMBAfest, Killington’s Glacier Grinder, the Winooski Pedal Paddle and the App Gap Challenge.
The Vermont Mountain Bike Association hosts its annual festival at Sugarbush’s Mount Ellen area with group rides, camping, clinics, demos, live music and games.
This 40-mile ride features 4,500 feet of elevation gain on scenic gravel roads and unmaintained town roads, with four climbs. endurancesociety.org
Participants start at the Ethan Allen Homestead in Burlington for the 4-mile “pedal” portion of the event. In Winooski, folks will launch a canoe or kayak and paddle back to the Homestead on the Winooski River, as it winds through the beautiful Intervale.
Competitors rollerski up the Appalachian Gap. The pursuit format starts with skate and transitions to classic mid course at the parking lot of Mad River Glen. Try and break the course record for the $100 cash prize.
