Foliage seekers travel from all over the globe to partake in ‘leaf peeping’ the gorgeous reds, vibrant oranges, and bright yellows of the New England countryside each Fall and enjoy an unparalleled display of natural beauty. Take in the stunning colors of Vermont’s foliage as they peak from North to South on three different Vermont cycling trips. Join us as we ride Lake Champlain Valley’s stunning routes, including the college town of Middlebury, ranked as one of the “top five foliage towns in New England” by Yankee Magazine, or cycle among the rolling mountains deep in the heart of Vermont, on our Stowe Fall Foliage tour or combine the best of the two trips into a Foliage Weekend covering both Stowe and Lake Champlain Valley! Regardless of which Vermont Fall Foliage bicycle tour you choose, farm stands serving hot cider, freshly picked apples, and Vermont’s famous cider donuts only add to the bucket list experience of witnessing New England’s most beautiful season!
In addition to our popular week-long Stowe Fall Foliage and Lake Champlain Fall Foliage trips, we are thrilled to introduce a new Weekend Vermont Foliage Trip in October. Join us for an unforgettable experience as we combine the highlights of both trips into one fabulous foliage weekend, encompassing the captivating beauty of Stowe and the enchanting Lake Champlain Valley.
