“Tour de Pownal” Fall Bike Ride
Saturday, September 25, 2021 9:45 am (for 10 am start)
Update! New Tour de Pownal Route Just Added
We’ve added an “unofficial” 35-mile route to the Tour de Pownal fall bike ride (Saturday, September 25) for cyclists who want MORE: more river, more miles, more hills, and more fall foliage. Riders of this route will meet at 9:15 am for a 9:30 am start, a half hour before the official ride starts a 10 am.
The ride, co-presented by the Pownal Parks and Recreation Committee and the Hoosic River Watershed Association (HooRWA), is limited to the first 20 preregistered participants and repeats the loops of the 2020 ride. The 10-mile loop begins and ends in North Pownal in the parking lot of the North Pownal Congregational Church at 3554 Route VT-346, near the bottom of North Pownal Road. Meet at 9:45 am for a 10 am start.
Contact Julie at email@example.com by September 23 to preregister and to receive an email the morning of the ride if it must be canceled due to weather.
