The terrain near Lake Champlain is flat to rolling hills, with rides along the lakeshore to wide valleys of rolling farmland. On our Vermont 4-day bike tour, all of the rides are highlighted by rewarding vistas and winding roads, thanks to the beautiful scenery. Please be aware that you will encounter sections of dirt and gravel roads on a daily basis. As always, if you wish to skip these sections you are welcome to shuttle in the support van. Vermont is best suited for our Type 2 and 3 Riders. Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 1 and 2 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van. Those who wish to ride every mile but are concerned about their physical ability may want to try our electric bike option—you still get a workout but can climb alongside even the strongest rider. Type 3+ Riders will enjoy the extra mileage and climbs the avid route options offer during our Vermont bike trip.
On most Trek Travel trips, we offer non-riding options for riders who want to take the afternoon off, or travel companions who want to spend little or no time in the saddle. Some of these options may need to be scheduled before your trip–please contact one of our Trip Consultants for more information. Expenses and/or related transportation to these activities may not be included in the trip price. Some non-riding options on our 4-day Vermont bike tour are:
  • Take advantage of Basin Harbor's many amenities, including the day spa, golf, lawn games, kayaking, paddle boarding, and tennis or relax at the pool or beach
  • Visit the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, the Shelburne Museum, or Shelburne Farms
  • Shop at boutiques in Middlebury and Vergennes
  • Take a yoga class
  • Hike to Mt. Philo for expansive views of Lake Champlain
