Switchback Bike for the Lake
June 18, 2016 @ 6:45 am - 5:00 pm$45
Do your part for clean water, get some great exercise, connect with friends, and experience some of Vermont’s most stunning scenery all at the same time this summer at our annual Switchback Bike for the Lake supported ride! Funds raised from this event will support the work of Friends of Northern Lake Champlain on projects prevent nutrient pollution and ensure that we can still enjoy this natural treasure for many generations to come!
We have moved the start to KNIGHTS POINT STATE PARK in North Hero this year to accommodate more bikers and a bigger venue for the Healthy Roots BBQ.
We are featuring new routes this year along the shores of New York and Vermont. We have our centennial ride (100 miles), as well as shorter loops of 80, 60, and 30 miles along the shores of beautiful Lake Champlain.
Ferry passes will be provided in packets for those bikers headed over to NY.
Healthy Roots BBQ- When RIDERS arrive!!
This year, RIDERS will be able to enjoy a beer and BBQ as soon as they arrive!!
Join us for the HEALTHY ROOTS BBQ AND SWITCHBACK BEER!!
We believe clean water and healthy, sustainable food systems are closely connected- one can’t exist without the other. Choose from locally sourced beef, all organic hot-dogs, sausages from Does Leap Farm in Bakersfield, VT, locally harvested and prepared salads and more. Beer will be provided by a Vermont staple- the one and only Switchback Brewing Company! Thank you to Northwestern Medical Center for sponsoring the BBQ!
Save the Lake Jerseys- represent our Lake Champlain every time you ride!
One-of-a-kind cycling jerseys will be available to purchase the day of the ride.
