Raid Lamoille 2016
Lamoille – say it like a local, “lah-moyl” – rhymes with olive oil. Got it?
Brilliant sun in 2015, torrential rain in 2016 – what will 2017 bring? We can tell you it will have stout climbing on quintessential Vermont gravel, a hearty group of riders and an incredible after party..and maybe some surprises. This is one ride you won’t want to miss.
The route is approximately 100K (60+ miles), mostly gravel roads through the stunning Vermont countryside and will include nearly 6,000 feet of climbing. Yeah, it’s hard. But the decision is easy, you gotta put some gravel in your travel!
Not up for 100K? We have a nice 50K option too. Everybody rides!
Raid – Our definition? A raid is a challenging route that includes a significant amount of packed-gravel riding and some major climbing segments. Some would call it a dirt road randonee, others a gravel grinder, we just call it a Raid. This is not a race. A properly prepared rider and bike of most any type can do this. Our guarantee – you will finish tired but feeling accomplished. It’s probably not for everybody, but you’re not everybody, right?
“I did Lamoille this year (2015). That was the most enjoyable ride I have ever done. That includes training rides here in Texas, races here, and the Vermont 50. The Raid Lamoille was the most fun I’ve ever had on a bike. ” – Trevor
Our post-ride celebration will include great grub washed down by locally-crafted beer from the Alchemist Brewery!
