Perfect for every level

The Lake Champlain Region offers variations of multiple trails, offering a stunning ride for the experts and beginners alike. For beginner, intermediate, and experienced riders, the Lewis gravel route is the perfect way to introduce yourself to gravel cycling in the region. This is a good long loop that is always continually changing. The ride bounces between unpaved and paved surfaces, climbs and descents, and forests and fields, offering the best views and multiple different environments of the LCR. For intermediate and experienced riders, the Penfield loop offers up a unique challenge, right at the birthplace of modern electricity! Start at the Penfield Homestead Museum and make your way across the region.
