The Overland

The Overland

A MAJOR FUNDRAISER FOR THE READING/WEST WINDSOR FOOD SHELF

Challenge yourself

 The Overland is a 45-mile dirt road bicycle race featuring 6,000 feet of climbing, eight sections of “Vermont pavé” (unmaintained ancient public roads), two well-fortified sag stops, a magnificently scenic route and an awesome party afterwards.  It’s the ultimate overland adventure ride.   Open dirt roads, amazing scenery and an epic course unlike any you’ve ever ridden before, all within a beautiful Vermont pastoral setting.

The purpose of this race is to promote the wonderful world of overland adventure riding and to benefit the Reading/West Windsor Food Shelf, an integral organization in the event’s host town of Reading.

NOTE NEW VENUE AND COURSE:   The Overland is all about soul.  We found at our previous venue that things were becoming a little institutionalized, which is inevitable when events grow larger.  We decided to go in the opposite direction.  500 riders max at a truly rural, home-grown venue (my house).   Be one of the lucky riders to experience our amazing new course with now eight Pavé Sectors, eye-popping vistas, two covered bridges and 6,000 feet of climbing.  When you finish the race, come and claim your free first beer, take a dip in the pool and grab yourself some chow from our awesome farm-table food trucks. Your biggest problem will be you won't want to go home!
