Onion River Sports will be hosting the Muddy Onion Bike Tour on Sunday April 26, 2015. This 34 mile ride will ascend 4,000 feet of climbing on Vermont’s scenic dirt roads around the Montpelier area.

The registration fee is $25 for early registrants or $30 on day of the event. A portion of the proceeds will go towards a fund being raised to build a bridge that would cross the Winooski River on the Cross Vermont Trail near Route 2. The ride begins at 9:30 at the parking lot of Onion River Sports located at 20 Langdon Street in Montpelier, Vermont.
This ride is fully supported. There will be before and after ride refreshments including premium Vermont maple syrup and such delicacies as chocolate bacon. It might even be worth 4,000 feet of early season climbing to try that!
