So excited to announce a Vermont Adaptive sponsored OFF ROAD Adaptive Bike Race/Ride on Saturday, Sept. 23 at 12:30 p.m.
Join us Saturday, Sept. 23 from 12:30-2 p.m. (the day before the Vermont 50) to learn more about our adaptive mountain bike program and ride some of Mount Ascutney’s trails. All abilities welcome, from never-ever to advanced riders. The ride will take place on the same trails as the kids’ fun race, just prior to their race on Saturday, right at the start/finish.
This leisurely 1-mile ride welcomes all adaptive and non-adaptive riders and is part of Vermont Adaptive’s open enrollment program. Reservations are required if you need to use our bikes (the number of bikes is limited). The ride itself is free and people are welcome to bring their own bikes.
After the ride, beginning at 2 p.m., we’ll have bikes to demo at the Vermont Adaptive tent as well, for those who might want to try the bikes but not go out on an official ride.
Please email Olivia Joseph at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about the ride and equipment needs.
On behalf of the Vermont 50 Race Committee and ALL our landowners and volunteers-WELCOME
You’ve probably heard by now that we lost an integral member, a family member, of our race. Lou Schmertz (fourth from right) passed earlier this week. He was one of the original mountain bikers and has been guiding us over these many years. If you have attended our race in the past, you may have met him at the information table, out on the course where he served as course marshal with Art Keating, out marking trails, or just bopping around in his Jeep with his dogs.
We’ll go on this weekend because he’d want us to! We hope you’ll join us in honoring his memory on Sunday before our 50 mile and 50 km race starts with a moment of silence for the big man, for Lou-ster.
Lou-We’ll all Miss You!
