By Barb Wood, Riverwood Photography

The fifth annual Long Trail Century Ride to benefit Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports returns to Vermont again on Saturday, June 27, where cyclists of all abilities can ride a century, 60- or 20-mile course to raise funds and awareness for disabled sports programming. Adaptive athletes are sponsored and ride for free. The goal is to raise $200,000 this year, which is used for adaptive programming and equipment.

The century ride, plus 60- and 20-mile routes, start and end at the Long Trail Brewery in Bridgewater Corners. The routes travel through Killington and surrounding communities including Pittsfield, Stockbridge, Bethel, Woodstock, and Ludlow.

An après-ride party, featuring live music with Duane Carleton plus the Pete Kilpatrick Band, face painting, kids games, a vendor village, Lazy Cow ice cream, adaptive equipment demos and more will be held after the ride at the brewery for all to enjoy – riders, spectators and visitors alike. For those not riding, party-only tickets may be purchased in advance or at the door. The event is held rain or shine.
