ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Enjoy the way cycling was meant to be as you explore the exquisite natural beauty of quaint rural communities, rolling green hills, and the rich heritage of French Canada and Vermont along paved, idle roads. Ride over wooded hills and through charming towns, learn about the natural forces and the human settlement by the rugged colonists and French explorers, and breathe in the clean, crisp air. Experience the culture and delights along the way, as you pedal the unhurried, high-quality biking roads on both sides of the U.S.-Canada frontier.


• Numerous riding options over quiet, paved rural routes and converted rails-to-trails offer scenic landscapes.
• Explore historic towns, French cafés, local cheeses and wines, covered bridges and the charm of lovely Vermont and Québec villages.
• Expert cyclists will provide insight into the history and natural wonders of scenic North Country.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.

Date Notes
Our special guest is Jonathan Sonneborn who will lead evening presentations about the life and films of Preston Sturges. One of Hollywood's master screenwriter/directors, Preston Sturges took 30s screwball comedy to new heights, breaking ground as the first screenwriter who finally persuaded a major studio into letting him direct his own work. Learn about Sturges' life and career, then watch and discuss several of his movies throughout the week including The Good Fairy and Christmas in July.10/9/2016
The colours of Autumn are upon us. Behold this world class spectacle from two wheels and in the slow lane as our chase vehicles take you to the hot spots in the Sutton hills and the border country of Northern Vermont.
