You know that Stowe is the ski capital of the East, but thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers and biking enthusiasts, Stowe is emerging as the place to ride bikes in central Vermont. In addition to more than 50 miles of single-track mountain biking trails snaking through hills and valleys of Waterbury and at the Trapp Family Lodge in Moscow, Stowe boasts an award-winning, 5.3-mile bike path in the village. As a premier resort town, Stowe is well equipped to cater to visitors’ needs. For the biking season, that means hundreds of bicycles are available for rent in or near Stowe. Check the pages of this special mountain biking section for the best places for bike rental, repairs and purchase. Many of the stores listed also sell the new Stowe Mountain Bike Club trail maps — a must-have for exploring Stowe’s amazing single-track network. Stowe and Waterbury’s many lodging facilities offer accommodations for mountain bikers and cyclists, and our award-winning restaurants and bars are just the place to find sustenance and quench your thirst after an exhilarating ride. We hope you go out and enjoy the amazing cycling opportunities here, which would not be possible without the efforts of volunteers from the Stowe Mountain Bike Club. They built an amazing trail network and constantly lend us their considerable expertise. For questions about trail conditions, trail access, routes, equipment and activities, the best sources are the mechanics and employees at local bike shops.
