About Mad River Riders




2016 continues to be the most momentum-filled ride yet for the Mad River Riders. To celebrate our 30th Anniversary, we threw biggest bike party of the summer, the Vermont Mountain Bike Festival, at Mt. Ellen. We've built tons of new trail, including Evolution in Camels Hump State Forest, and have several more in the works, including Lookout Loop at Blueberry Lake. We also adopted essential connections like the Rocky Road and Techie. 

The Riders helped invest more than $100,000 in Mad River Valley trails in 2015 through grants, private support, and over 2000 hours of volunteer contributions. Our free programs, like the Mad River Rippers kids’ group rides and Ali Zimmer’s Women’s Wednesday Clinics, served more than 100 youth and women riders in 2015.
