Support Disabled Sports
The Vermont Adaptive Charity Ride presented by Long Trail Brewing (formerly known as the Long Trail Century Ride) is an annual event to enjoy the beauty of Vermont through cycling and mountain biking all while raising funds for the state’s largest nonprofit organization committed to providing sports and recreation to people with disabilities.
Whether cycling on the 100-mile, 60-mile or 40-mile loops, or simply journeying on the 20-mile loop or the family-friendly 5K bike ride, there is something for everyone to enjoy during the Vermont Adaptive Charity Ride. All courses start and finish at Long Trail Brewery, located on Route 4. The festivities continue for all after the ride, where a BBQ menu will be prepared, live music and family entertainment, refreshments, and more will make this an event not to be missed.
