Bike Vermont Dirty

Since long before the label "gravel cycling" was created, Vermonters have been riding their bikes on the choicest dirt roads in the country. We have always known that the best way to get from here to there isn't always a straight line, and the greatest adventures are the ones you never see coming.

Green Mountain Gravel brings you the best in today's gravel cycling from the place and people who were doing it before it had a name.

Get your gear, grab a route and get out on the road. 

Green Mountain Gravel is with you. Bike Vermont Dirty.
