150 lucky participants enjoyed a weekend of cycling in the great outdoors

It was a Beautiful day for a bike ride in Vermont’s Champlain Islands including the weekend long Small Group Bike Tour and the new 6 Foot Fondo last Monday.

Cyclists experienced Stunning Lake and mountain views, quaint villages, quiet meandering roads, fresh and fantastic local foods -- this is Vermont, the heart of the small farm movement.

Cyclists indulged in creations from young Vermonter farmers including artisan cheeses, craft breweries, high-quality organic fruits and vegetables, and much more at the small bite aid stations.

Farming has always played a large role in the lives of Vermonters, featured farms hosting the small bite aid stations included Snow Farm Winery, Hackett's Orchard, Dreamwalker Farm and  Sunset Lake Farm.

The 55 mile Medio Fondo allowed cyclists a bit more time to get up close and personal with Lake Champlain and enjoy the light breezes and take in the gorgeous summer-in-Vermont views.

As more people get on bikes the 27 Mile Piccolo Fondo proved popular and provided Bucolic landscapes, working farms and stunning views on and around Lake Champlain.

The 9 mile ramble ride allowed families to see some farms and lovely views by bike with friends, cross the finish line and relax and enjoy a day out in the fresh air together.

Afterwards, everyone enjoyed a socially distanced Post-Ride Farm to Fork Picnic Lunch at host farm Snow Farm Vineyard in South Hero.

All guests, staff, and volunteers were required to wear face coverings when gathering or near others. Face coverings were not required while riding or eating. A custom Farm to Fork face covering was included in the entry fee. Participants will be released in small groups of no more than 25 riders every 15 minutes to limit rider density.

Tyler Wren, founder of Wrenegade Sports commented, “THANK YOU to all the participants, staff, community, volunteers, sponsors, and everyone else involved for collaborating to safely pull off Farm to Fork 6-Foot Fondo in the Champlain Islands on Labor Day!! Such a surreal experience to see everyone together and we appreciate EVERYONE'S compliance with Vermont's regulations and our safety protocols.”

Proceeds from the Champlain Islands 6 Foot Fondo donations support the Lake Champlain Land Trust. Land conservation efforts protect small family farms and working forests in the Champlain Valley, protecting local heritage by supporting the region’s long tradition of public access to Lake Champlain for boating, fishing, and swimming. Public access areas and community trails also provide places for fitness and outdoor recreation for residents and visitors alike, connecting people to the land. In Grand Isle County alone, the Lake Champlain Land Trust has saved or assisted in the protection of 1,238 acres of farmland, forestland, wetlands, and land with recreational trails.

Farming has always played a large role in the lives of Vermonters, but today it faces more pressure than ever before and much of the state's quiet country landscape is in danger.
