Update: Thanks to everyone who came out! Check out this video from the event:
Formerly known as the Long Trail Century Ride to benefit Vermont Adaptive, the 9th Annual Vermont Adaptive Charity Ride presented by Long Trail Brewing is coming up on Saturday, June 22nd! This fun and inclusive event is designed to raise funds for adaptive sports and recreation programs from Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports. The goal is to raise $300,000 for VT Adaptive programs. RAD-Innovations LLC™ is pleased to announce that they will be attending the event once again with recumbent trikes and tandems for people to try out.
From the Vermont Adaptive website:
Up to 700 cyclists, including riders with disabilities and their guides, are expected to attend this year! The event offers 100, 60, 40 and 20 mile riding loops as well as a family-friendly 5K bike ride. All courses start and end at the Long Trail Brewery on Route 4 in Bridgewater Corners, Vermont. After the ride, the fun continues with an after party at the brewery, including BBQ, live music, family entertainment, refreshments and more. The Starline Rhythm Boys and Bob Marley tribute band Duppy Conquerors will provide live music. Other activities at the party include face painting, a silent auction, and a vendor village. Apres-Ride party only tickets are available for $20 if you can’t make the ride but want to join in on the fun and support adaptive sports!
This year, the mountain bike “Snowshed Session” at Killington Resort will take place on Sunday morning (June 23rd), but don’t worry - your mountain bike registration includes admission to the party on Saturday and all the other goodies! Mountain bike riders will be placed in divisions by age class and will have two timed runs. Prizes will be awarded to the top finishers in each division.
RAD-Innovations LLC™ will be on hand to offer assistance to adaptive riders and showcase some of our recumbent trikes and tandems. Be sure to stop by our booth in the vendor village to say hello and check out our unique trikes and bikes!
If you register for this amazing event by June 1st, you’ll receive a Killington Ticket Voucher valid for one day of skiing during the 2019-2020 ski season or one day of mountain biking during the 2019 summer season!
We hope to see you there!
