Greater Vermont Bicycle Tour Itineraries
Our southern Vermont tour itineraries offer cycling enthusiasts a unique opportunity to experience quintessential Vermont up close and personal. And while our tours center around Windham County, Vermont, the reach of our tours extends into equally beautiful and historic portions of the county's neighboring states. For example, our Pioneer Valley Meets the Mohawk Trail Tour includes large portions of Massachusetts' historic Pioneer Valley with its well-conceived network of bike routes and bike paths. And our Historic River Valley Tours (3-stage with Chester, 3-stage with Grafton, & 4-stage versions) include lovely and historic portions of New Hampshire's Cheshire County.
Regardless of where you're touring with Diverse Directions in the greater Vermont area you'll have the opportunity to experience the best of historic New England -- functioning covered bridges, quaint and charming 250-year-old villages that continue to thrive, brilliant green hills and valleys (unless it's fall foliage season), sparkling rivers and waterfalls, and of course, a warm welcome from a friendly, down-to earth people known for their celebration of rural life and their live-and-let-live ethos.
Bike Touring Formats
Diverse Directions offers cyclists a choice of two touring formats: Circuit Tours and Hub & Spoke Tours. Tour itineraries of the Circuit Tour format are for those who wish to cycle to a different overnight destination daily (with the exception of optional rest days.) For travelers preferring to limit the frequency with which they change hotels, our Hub & Spoke Tours include 2 base locations (hubs) from which you make multiple roundtrip cycling excursions (spokes.)
