Ride Leader Comments

As with the South Florida March 2021 & Seattle-Vancouver-Victoria 2023 tours, we are conducting this tour with another non-profit bicycle touring club - people from each club will be on the tour.  Please feel free to contact me at my email (rbrookler@yahoo.com) if you have questions or need further information.

Tour Rating: This tour is rated as ‘Moderate’.  Some days are easier than others.  There are 6 cycling days with an average distance of 50 miles and 2500’ of climbing.  See details below.  There are about 13 hours of daylight each day – plenty of time to cycle and enjoy the scenery.  This is a very rural tour – the total population of the cities/towns in which we stay is less than 100,000 people.

Weather: The weather in northern Vermont and New York is typically mild in beginning of September.  Heat, cold or rain is unpredictable!

Cycling Vermont and the Adirondacks!

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy
Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Challenging
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a bicycle touring club, which you can join for free. We offer Domestic and International Cycling Tours which are led by volunteer Ride Leaders. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 15-20 or so) who want to ride an average of 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world. Our tours range in price from frugal getaways to luxurious adventures. We travel road, gravel, or mountain bike styles, and all bicycle types – including e-bikes, recumbents, and tandems are typically allowed.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
