Vermont Inn to Inn Tour- August 3 to August 9

This is a two inn tour that will also take us into the foothills of the White Mts of New Hampshire within sight of Mt Washington. About 30 riders usually attend this tour that will stay at the Quechee Inn near Woodstock, VT and Thayers Inn in Littleton, NH.

Additional information and application forms are on the Vermont Tours page.    

Vermont Weekend - July 31 to August 3

We will be returning to Brandon, VT for the long August weekend for three nights. Driving time from Ottawa should be about 5 hours. If you haven't cycled in Vermont, you're missing some of the best cycling anywhere. The weekend in Brandon is reasonably priced, in a very nice inn in an interesting little town, and offers a wide variety of beautiful rides.

Additional information and application forms are on the Vermont Tours page.

Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu - July 24th to July 26th

Once again, Mme Boucher-Boutin will be hosting us at the Auberge Harris in Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu for our Friday and Saturday night stay. The terrain is not 'dramatic'--to the south and west of the immediate area it is flat to slightly rolling farmland becoming increasingly more rolling the further east you go. If you're really adventurous, there's a optional, remote-start, route (with a $5-$15 uplift for transport) commencing in northern Vermont (passport alert!), going south through the middle of Lake Champlain and back north via either the Vermont or New York shore of Lake Champlain; we'll vote.

More information and application forms on the Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu page.
