About the Tour
Begin and end at Snow Farm Vineyard, 190 West Shore Rd, South Hero, VT. Registration runs from 9-10am.

Bike to the heart of the Champlain Islands during the annual Open Farm and Studio Weekend. Choose a 10 or 25-mile route with stops at a variety of island farms, art studios, and vineyards.

All routes include a mix of lakeside views and scenic back roads. Wide shoulders on most paved stretches, dirt roads, and mild hills make for wonderful cycling. There will be plenty of places to fill your water bottle, rest, and sample local eats along the route.
