Nestled within the tranquil, rural setting of the Champlain Valley, small cities, towns and historic villages provide the services and amenities attractive to touring bicyclists.


Bicyclists have the luxury of choosing from campgrounds, motels, hotels, shoreline parks, bed & breakfasts, or charming country inns. The area's notoriously friendly innkeepers have also realized the economic benefits of catering to bicyclists.
