Vermont - a Cruiser’s Paradise
Whether it is on a motorcycle or bicycle or in a car, Vermont is a cruiser’s paradise. Vermont has three major north/south routes that take you from the Massachusetts border to Canada (Routes 5, 7 and 100) and three major east/west routes that take you across the entire state (Routes 2, 4 and 9). Each road offers its own unique treasures and all of the roads showcase the range of Vermont from its smallest towns to its Vermont-sized cities. Route 2, for example, takes you from the beautiful Lake Champlain Islands east through Montpelier, the smallest state capital in the country and further east toward St. Johnsbury and the gateway to the rural grandeur of the famous Northeast Kingdom. At only 157 miles from top to bottom, you can see most of Vermont in a week’s time and find your own special places to fall in love with.
Vermont – ‘Moab of the East’
With 9,000 miles of mostly rural roads and hundreds of miles of off-road trails, Vermont is rapidly gaining attention as a mountain biking destination. Recent major articles in the New York Times and Men’s Journal touted Vermont as a mountain biking mecca. From leisurely municipal biking trails to peaceful back roads to hard-core off road terrain it may not be long before you hear Moab referred to as ‘the Vermont of the West.’
