SoVT VMBA Chapter Explore & Tour Ride Series Begins Sunday (6.25)

Posted on Posted in Blog

BATS FOLKS: Let’s carpool! If you want to carpool, leave a comment on the  Facebook Event Discussion Page: SoVT VMBA Chapter Explore & Tour Ride Series or contact Jared or Silvia.

All: Please note the date for the BATS hosted ride in Bennington has been changed to Friday, 7/14. Details below.

This idea has been brewing, and a few of us at NATS and BATS decided to get it rolling. Our goal is to visit our neighboring VMBA Chapter’s trail systems and ride with the clubs that built the trails to 1) Ride Bikes together 2) See what’s been built or is being working on & learn about goals, challenges, and successes 3) Eat, drink & be merry

First stop:
Sunday, June 25th – 10am-1:30 (ish) pm at the Dorset Village Green
Host: Northshire Area Trail System (NATS)
Post Ride: Bring some cash or food. We will either do a mini-tailgate BBQ or go to the Dorset Farmers’ Market (open til 2) or HN Williams for food after the ride. Carpooling advised as limited parking at the Dorset Village Green.

2nd Stop:
Friday, July 14th, 5:30 pm-8:30pm meeting at 5:30 at Highlander Bicycle, 160 Benmont Avenue, Bennington, VT
Host: Bennington Area Trail System (BATS)
Post Ride: Grab burritos at Cilantro’s or chose from the menu at Harvest Brewing (side by side). Bring your VMBA membership card for discount at Harvest.

3rd Stop: TBD – Who wants to host?

Kindly RSVP here, or email Silvia at silcassano @ so we have a rough idea of how many folks to expect.

*Kiddos welcome, but let us know ahead of time so we can make sure there is a ride leader at a different pace.

**We love dogs, but please leave them at home (or bring a leash and someone to walk them. The BATS trails on the SVC campus portion of trails require dogs on leash).

*** Share with your club/chapter members and friends

Thanks again for making this idea happen and we hope you can join us! Happy Trails!
