Long Trail Century Ride To Benefit Vermont Adaptive June 22
The ride’s plus-60 and 20-mile routes will start and end at the Long Trail Brewery in Bridgewater Corners. The routes travel trough Killington, Pittsfield, Stockbridge, Bethel, Woodstock, and Ludlow.
It all starts with Happy Hour Friday from 4-8 at Killington’s Unbrella Bar at the top of Killington Road. Participants will receive race packets and information at the event.
Staff from the Lookout Tavern in Killington will host a BBQ in the field by the brewery following the Saturday morning ride. Sneaky Pete will be cooking chicken, sausage and peppers, pulled pork, hamburgers and hot dogs, and roasted veggies. Duane Carlton will perform in the afternoon.
Adaptive cyclists may ride any route at no cost and there will be adaptive bikes and guides available. All ride participants receive a complimentary midweek ticket voucher to ski or ride at Killington next season.
“We believe sports and recreation provide a physical, mental, and social experience that is immeasurable in promoting self-confidence and independence in an individual,” says Erin Fernandez, Vermont Adaptive Executive Director.
