You’ll never forget the view, not only of the distant landscape, but also of the historic buildings, barns, inns, and Victorian houses.

Besides those winding trails through some of the most impressive views on the continent,Vermont is also well known for its rugged landscape that gives it a reputation for world-class mountain biking - even on snow! So ditch the snowshoes for a faster pace and head to Winterbike, a festival on Saturday, March 3rd, celebrating the burgeoning fatbike culture (fat tires mean they can balance on snow and ice!). The demo event features a variety of activities including group rides, a bonfire, games, races, music, sugar on snow, and refreshments. Hosted by Kingdom Trails and Mountain Bike Vermont, basic registration gives you access to the Kingdom Trails network and all Winterbike activities. Watch a race or take a demo fatbike for a spin for 45 minute rides throughout the day. Visit the website for more information.
