|Vermont welcomes you!|
In 2015 the Vermont Challenge's home is both Stratton Mountain Resort and the lovely village of Manchester. Since all our rides this year are loops ending back at your starting point you'll have access to your cars for a plethora of afternoon activities: Canoeing, horseback riding, hiking, shopping or a trip to the spa.
Over the four days, we ride out of Manchester for two days, one days out of the Vermont Country store for a great barbeque lunch in Weston (about 18-20 miles from either Stratton or Manchester and finally the Fondo Saturday out of Stratton Mountain resort.
There are many sponsor lodging choices from the elegant and quaint inns to lovely hotels/motels for all budgets. A great way to save money on lodging is to share a room with you riding buddies. Many of these lodging choices also cater to families so bring your family and make a mini vacation out of the weekend and enjoy all that Vermont offers.
Please note: You are responsible for selecting and booking your own lodging and your Vermont Challenge registration fee does not include lodging.
