2018 Leaf Blower Fall Classic Mountain Bike Festival
The Stowe Trails Partnership, in collaboration with Mountain Bike Vermont, is stoked to present Vermont’s favorite mountain bike tradition: the Leaf Blower Fall Classic Mountain Bike Festival. This year’s Leaf Blower is going down on Saturday, October 6 and will be based out of Ranch Camp on Mountain Road. With group rides, vendors, home grown food, local libations and live music, there is simply no better way to cap off the season than with this one-day celebration of bikes and community.
As always, the marquee event will be the all-abilities group rides that tackle some of the northeast’s best terrain and afford some of Vermont’s best views—whether you’re a seasoned vet or a new to the MTB game, we have a ride for you. Clinics for beginner and intermediate riders, kids rides, all day endurance rides, and even rec path cruisers, the Leaf Blower has something for everyone. 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 homebase for a catered cookout, a few local brews, music from local legends Dale & Darcy, and the requisite telling of tall tales around the camp fire. Your registration covers the rides, snacks, cookout, a beverage, a bag o’ goodies and a pair of Darn Tough bike socks!
The Leaf Blower is Stowe Trails Partnership’s largest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds from this event go straight back to building and maintaining Stowe’s trails. So, register early, rest your legs, and get ready for the best day of the year in support of our trails!
