This weekend on Saturday, August 12, you can join in one of the great Vermont events – the Harpoon Point to Point bike race in Windsor, Vt. This event has become the largest fundraiser for the Vermont Foodbank raising over $1.3 million since its inception in 2002. Come ride 100, 50, or 25 miles on the road or take the mountain challenge with the 20-mile mountain bike trial at Mt. Ascutney. The ride is well-organized, the scenery incomparable, and the post-ride party legendary. Hosted by Harpoon Brewery, the party features delicious BBQ, live music, and fresh beer straight from the source. (Showers are also available for riders!) Registration is available up to and including the day of the race. Sign up to ride or volunteer at harpoonpointtopoint.com.
Don’t ride? Come along and cheer on the riders while supporting a great charity, the Vermont Foodbank.
