The River Valley Ramble

Saturday October 23-Sunday October 24th

The River Valley Ramble is an overnight tour from Northampton Massachusetts to Brattleboro Vermont. A true classic for fall biking in Western Massachusetts!  As the cycling seasons draws to a sad end, join us on this relaxing and beautiful tour along the Connecticut River. This route favors quiet backroads through farmland and small towns. 

Over the course of 50 miles, you’ll see and experience the Connecticut River Valley in a very personal way.

  • Pass by a Hop farm growing hops for the numerous craft breweries, fertile farm fields growing organic produce and small towns as we ride along the Connecticut River. 
  • We will stop along the way for coffee at a quant and totally unique bookstore and cafe overlooking a waterfall and river.
  • Have a beer at local brewery or ice cream cone in the center of historic Northfield. 
  • Once in Brattleboro you will have time to relax and wander before dinner.
  • You will return to Northampton on Sunday after a group breakfast.
