Michael Akrep - Hither and Yon Adventure Rides

The Connecticut River Valley is well known for it’s quiet roadways, miles of beautiful rail trails, and gravel. The handy thing about rivers is that most of them have been within their flood plains for centuries, creating riverside terraces with gentle slopes where the first roads were cut. For bicyclists, that is friendly terrain.

Hither and Yon Adventure Rides will plan the route, recommend appropriate gear, and offer shuttle transport options. Our rides are tailored to a mix of abilities from easy road rides to long rail trail events, or exciting Vermont gravel. We know the best bike routes in the valley! Check out our Events page for more information.

Ride tickets include options for shuttle transportation for riders and bikes in a van with a trailer to the ride location. Transportation and logistics support is provided by TwoWheelHorizons.com.
