Dear Cycling Enthusiast,
On June 23, 2012 Long Trail Brewing Company will be hosting and sponsoring the “Long Trail Century Ride to benefit Vermont Adaptive Ski & Sports.” Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports provides statewide year-round sports and recreation to individuals of all ages with physical, mental or cognitive disabilities.
Today, the organization is a leader in the Adaptive Sports Industry. It has more than 400 volunteer instructors who donate more than 17,000 hours to its clients and programs annually. The proceeds from this ride will help provide programming for those with disabilities and allow them to enjoy the outdoor activities and sports here in the great state of Vermont.
The ride is a recreational century ride (or shorter 50- and 20-mile routes) that starts and ends at Long Trail Brewery on Route 4 in Bridgewater Corners, Vermont. All participants who register will receive a lift ticket voucher to ski or ride Killington Resort during the 2012-2013 season. Those riders who raise $300 or more will receive a special Long Trail cycling jersey, and all participants receiving an event wicking tee as well as entry into the Apres-Ride Party at the brewery, complete with live music from the Pete Kilpatrick Band and local favorite Duane Carlton.
We hope you and your friends will join us – you can learn more here www.longtrailcenturyride.com
Vermont Adaptive is humbled that Long Trail Brewing Company has taken on this title role and are supporting the ride the way they are. The entire day on June 23 promises to be a fantastic one in the heart of the Green Mountains. Bring your friends and family for the après-ride party, too, as the jury is still out as to what will be more fun – the ride or the party!
