Vermont Mountain Bike Festival

Words: Erme Catino is proud to be a supporter of this weekend’s Vermont Mountain Bike Festival!  The festival will be taking place this weekend, July 16th and 17th in Waterbury, VT, and will be featuring a ton of activities, live music, and food.

Rides will be available for all abilities, from beginner and intermediate rides, to all day excursions in Stowe, Waitsfield, Waterbury, and Hinesburg.  In addition there will be hosted clinics and demos.

Be sure to swing by the Skiershop tent to meet the BikeStowe crew and demo an Intense Bike and GoPro.  You can also head out with our tour guide, Dean Decas, and after you finish getting radical stick around and re-fuel on some Vermont Peanut Butter samples.

It should be a great weekend, see you up here!

Sugarbush, Bikes, and Lifts

Last week the BikeStowe crew headed to Sugarbush Ski Resort to sample some of their lift serviced mountain biking.  In case you missed it, here’s a quick shot and link to their trip report: Lift service riding at The Bush. – Erme

Stoweflake Balloon Festival

Let’s face it skiers have a lot of toys, summer and winter, because when it comes down to it we like to play outside.  That being said, having a hot air ballon is a whole another game, that type of toy falls into the yacht or “rich toy” category.  So if you ever wondered what a hot air balloon is like, you are in luck this weekend as Stoweflake Mountain Resort is hosting their 25th Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival.

This weekend the skies around Stowe, VT are going to be full of hot air balloons and in my opinion the best way to check them out (besides throwing down a lot of $$ for a non-tethered ride) is to get on a bike.

So swing by Skiershop for some rental bikes: Rental Bike Info, and try to keep your eyes on the road/path.  The weather looks amazing, see you up here!


Happy Fourth of July Weekend
