Seems like yesterday we were patiently awaiting spring’s arrival, and now here we are in September talking about the Leaf Blower already. And if you’ve been to the Leaf Blower, you know there’s no better way to finish the MTB season than with the #bestdayoftheyear. This year’s Leaf Blower is going down on Sunday October 9 (don’t worry, you have Monday off), at Town & Country Resort on Mountain Road.
For 2016 we’re partnering with our friends at MTBVT.com to make the Leaf Blower even better! We’re also working with the Lamoille Community Food Share program to help raise some much needed food donations for those in need–so bring a few non-perishable food items to donate on the day of.
The marquee event will be the group rides for all abilities that tackle some of the northeast’s best terrain and afford some of Vermont’s best views. The on-trail snack stops (packed with goodies from a host of local supporters) have achieved near-legendary status so no worries on bonking. And after you’ve gotten your share of single track, adjourn back to Town & Country for a cook out, a few local brews, and the requisite telling of tall tales around the camp fire. Your registration fee covers all this and more (free Leaf Blower socks to all pre-registrants while supplies last!).
This day literally has something for everyone–even if you’re new to mountain biking, we’ll have clinics, kids rides, beginner rides, even some rec path cruisers. If you’re a hard charger and looking to log some serious mileage, we’ve got you covered there too (check out this write up from Leaf Blower 2015). Proceeds from this event go straight back to building and maintaining Stowe’s trails so register early, rest those legs, and get ready for the best day of the year!
