Bicyclists are quickly discovering some of the finest cycling in North America along a 1,600+ mile network of bicycle routes, known as Lake Champlain Bikeways, in the Lake Champlain Valley of Vermont, New York, and Québec. The network includes a total of 35 loops and tours ranging from 10 to 60 miles in length, in addition to the Champlain Bikeway, a 363-mile principal route around the entire Lake and along the Richelieu River to Chambly, Québec. Based on a rich array of natural, cultural, and historic themes, these loops meander along quiet back roads through extraordinary mountain and countryside scenery.

With growing national interest in bicycle tourism, Lake Champlain Bikeways, a public/private partnership, is quickly expanding its bicycle route network while serving as the information clearinghouse on bicycling opportunities in the Champlain Valley.
