100-Mile Road Ride

100 miles is no joke, but you’ll enjoy every mile of this course as you tour Central Vermont’s summer scenery. Kickstart your 100-mile ride with our hearty breakfast at the Bragg Farm starting line, and we’ll continue to fuel you along the way with five stations for hydration, food, restroom, and any mechanical support you need from Onion River Outdoors. As you come to the finish line on the State House Lawn, you’ll be greeted by cheers, music, your amazing swag bag, Point to Point t-shirt, a post-ride meal, and free beer if you’re 21+. Not bad incentives to sign up for the 100-miler!

100-Mile Road Ride Description

  • From Bragg Farm, this long loop takes you northeast along VT-14, past numerous ponds and small lakes on your way through East Calais (mile 7.0) and the Woodbury town center (mile 13.0). Woodbury Mountain towers above Greenwood Lake (mile 13.8) at the beginning of a long descent into Hardwick Village, where shops and restaurants crowd along the banks of the Lamoille River (mile 18.6).
  • From here, you’ll follow the Lamoille upstream and take a left onto VT-16 (mile 20.9) into the farmlands of East Hardwick and Greensboro Bend (mile 25.8). Enjoy this stretch of quiet, wooded roads alternating with big views across the broad valley to distant mountains. After passing Clarks Pond (mile 33.8), you’ll follow the Barton River downstream through Glover and into the village of Barton (mile 41.4).
  • From there, you’ll climb up out of the river valley and turn left off Route 5 (mile 44.4) through a high gap between Butternut Hill and Allen Hill (mile 46.4). Descending from the gap, the village of Irasburg is silhouetted on its hilltop ahead of you. After climbing into Irasburg (mile 48.9), you’ll be back on RT-14 heading south, following the Black River along the base of the steep Lowell Mountains with their ridgeline wind turbines.
  • You’ll pedal past many large, stately barns as you roll through the farmlands of Albany (mile 55.7) and Craftsbury, and then cross into the Wild Branch valley (mile 62.0) and follow that through Wolcott to the wide Lamoille River Valley (mile 70.5).
  • Heading downstream along the Lamoille, you pass through Morrisville (mile 76.1) and then climb along the base of Elmore Mountain before descending to the shores of Elmore Lake (mile 80.4).
  • From here, a remote stretch of wooded road leads you south alongside the tall, rugged Worcester Mountains. Approaching Worcester Village (mile 93.4), the landscape opens up into fields with long views.
  • Following the north branch of the Winooski River, your final miles take you past Wrightsville Reservoir (mile 97.6) and back to Montpelier’s narrow valley for your celebratory finish at the State House.
