The Overland is one of the most popular and longest running gravel events in the US. The extremely scenic route spans 54-miles, features 7,000 feet of climbing, seven sectors of “Vermont pavé” (unmaintained ancient public roads), and two well-fortified sag stops. 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. Don’t be fooled though by the rolling nature of Vermont’s Green Mountain roads, the route comes with a barrage of short punchy climbs throughout.
With over 1,500 participants, this is one of the most popular gravel events in the country, let along New England. This event sells out very quickly. Registration opens annually on Jan 1 at 10 am, so it’s important to mark your calendar.
The event is produced by Vermont Overland, an organization dedicated to promoting a variety of gravel, adventure cycling, and running events every year — all with the purpose of sharing the spirit of adventure and making it possible for people to go explore Vermont on their own. The Overland specifically benefits the Reading/West Windsor Food Shelf and Ascutney Outdoors, both integral organizations in the event’s host town of Reading/West Windsor.
