About The Ride - Support Disabled Sports
The Long Trail Century Ride is an event established through a partnership of Long Trail Brewery in Bridgewater Corners, Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports, Killington Resort, the Lookout Tavern, and many local businesses in the Killington region. The goal of the annual event is to enjoy the beauty of Vermont through cycling all while raising funds for the state's largest nonprofit organization committed to providing sports and recreation to people with disabilities.
Whether cycling on the 100-mile, 60-mile or 40-mile loops, or simply journeying near the Brewery on the 20-mile loop or the family-friendly 5K bike ride, there is something for everyone to enjoy during the Long Trail Century Ride. All courses start and finish at Long Trail Brewery, located on Route 4. The festivities continue for all after the ride at the brewery, where a BBQ menu will be prepared, live music and family entertainment, refreshments, and more will make this an event not to be missed.
Mountain Bike “Snowshed Session” at Killington Resort. In 2017 we welcomed mountain bikers to the event through our partnership with Killington Resort. We’re excited to offer a Saturday morning mountain bike Snowshed Session at again this year at Killington’s Snowshed Trails. Killington will open the lift at 9 a.m. for LTCR2018 participants, one hour before public access, and mountain bikers are encouraged to set 5 and 10 lap goals.
Party-only tickets are available at the door if you don’t want to cycle but want to enjoy the event and support adaptive sports.
