The Champlain Islands boast some of Vermont’s most picturesque scenery. So why not explore these geographic gems on a bicycle? Part of the annual Open Farm and Studio Tour, the Islands Bike Tour grants cyclists the opportunity to pedal to local hotspots. Lakeside views accent 10- and 25-mile routes featuring on-call mechanical support and mixed terrain appropriate for all skill levels. Riders refuel along the way with stops at farms, art studios and vineyards, where they’ll find an array of offerings from veggies to paintings to a nice dry Riesling.
