Cyclists take on hunger

Vermont Foodbank takes up the fight against hunger with the annual Harpoon Point to Point ride on Sunday, Aug. 12.

Since its inception in 2002, the Harpoon Point to Point has become the Vermont Foodbank’s largest fundraiser of the year, raising over $1.3 million to date. Riders can choose 100, 50 or 25 miles on the road, or the 20-mile mountain bike trail at Mt. Ascutney. This well-supported ride will take cyclists along rivers, over covered bridges and through Vermont’s incomparable landscape with its infinite shades of green. A festive post-ride party awaits just acrossthe finish line at the Harpoon Brewery, complete with hot showers, delicious barbecue, live music and fresh beer, straight from the source.
