Ride, share, learn, and laugh during this truly special, women’s bike tour. Sojourn and Terry Bicycles bring you an extraordinary women’s weekend full of fun. This relaxed, educational, and social gathering is designed for women interested in cycling – from those just getting into the sport to those who have been riding for years. Enjoy a Terry trunk show and receive a free gift card courtesy of Terry, while also learning more about cycling skills, bike fit for women, nutrition, cycling fitness, and basic road repair, all while enjoying miles of fabulous rides in the company of like minded women during this Vermont-based bicycle vacation.
The Basin Harbor Resort and Boat Club, directly situated on Vermont’s beautiful Lake Champlain, will serve as the host site for the weekend. Amenities include dining room, pub, pool, tennis, golf, and a variety of watercraft. From here you will ride back roads that helped make Vermont one of the world’s top cycling destinations. Terrain is gently rolling with alternate routes for avid cyclists to add longer rides in some of those Vermont hills.
Each day will include interactive sessions and discussions with cycling experts on various topics. A nutrition and exercise consultant will also regale participants, and the trip will be guided by two of Sojourn’s experienced tour leaders. The event kicks off with an informal lakeside reception where everyone will have the opportunity to meet one another and enjoy Vermont wine, beer, and cheese.
It’s the top event of its kind for women this year – come join the fun!
