About the trip

Bike through rolling hills

What We Love

  • Winding paved roads
  • A historic covered bridge
  • See country farms and old stone walls
  • Riverside lunch

Your Day

Litchfield County, Connecticut's classic countryside, is the setting for a beautiful day of cycling. Quiet, winding roads lead us through historic townships and stunning views of the Berkshire Mountains. Start your day with a scenic drive up the Hudson River and arrive in the town of Kent, Connecticuit. After pairing up with your perfect bike, off you'll go, riding alongside the Housatonic River. You'll pass through "Bulls Bridge," a historic covered bridge built in 1842 and enjoy a riverside lunch. Finish the ride passing vast fields, farms, and ponds.

This trip is appropriate for cyclists of all levels.

Weather

Weather conditions can be quite different from the city in the mountainous regions we visit. Temperatures can be quite cooler as we head north or to higher elevations. Keep your eyes out for an email from our team a few days in advance of your trip. That email will provide updated weather conditions and will alert you to anything additional you should put in your pack to prepare. We head outside in any weather, as long as we know it's safe, and we don't let a little rain or wind ruin a chance for an adventure.
