Vermont bike tours are our passion. This is our home. This is where we ride. And, this is where we have cycled every country road for a hundred miles in all directions. We are locals here and, for that reason, and all the others that make Sojourn special, we hold the distinction of having the most respected of all Vermont bike tours.
Sojourn’s main office is located in the heart of the Lake Champlain Valley, just a mile from the shores of the lake. It’s a prime location from which to host bike tours here and throughout the Green Mountain State. Our staff, all of whom are ardent cyclists, are intimately familiar with the finest country roads around – those that showcase the valley’s gorgeous scenery and reward cyclists with that often elusive feeling of freedom elicited from cycling over rolling terrain along country roads devoid of motorized vehicles (save the occasional tractor).Read More
A warm breeze hints at summer as a visitor from Sweden pedals ahead, leading his extended family along the quiet shoreline. We swing east off the lake, along smooth country roads that seem to impose upon rich green blankets of the landscape we’re riding through. The sounds of birds and farm animals fill pauses in our conversation as we soak in the beauty of it all, and the glorious weather. The air smells fresh, a combination of plants springing to life and fragrant blossoms that waft tantalizingly through the air. The deep blue sky highlights farm fields and weathered barns. You can’t help but want days like this to go on forever.
