Leaf Blower Fall Classic

The Stowe Mountain Bike Club, in partnership with Mountain Bike Vermont, is stoked to present Vermont's favorite mountain bike tradition: the Leaf Blower Fall Classic Mountain Bike Festival.

This year's Leaf Blower is going down on Sunday October 8 and will be based out of Town & Country Resort on Mountain Road. With group rides, vendors, home grown food, live music, and local libations, there is simply no better way to cap off the season than with this one-day celebration of bikes and community. More info at: and

We're partnering once again with our friends at Mountain Bike Vermont - to make the Leaf Blower even better! We're also working with theLamoille Community Food Share program to help raise some much needed food donations for those in need -- bring a few canned goods to share and spread the love!

As always, the marquee event will be the all-abilities group rides that tackle some of the northeast's best terrain and afford some of Vermont's best views—whether you're a seasoned vet or a new to the MTB game, we have a ride for you. Clinics for beginner and intermediate riders, kids rides, all day endurance rides, and even rec path cruisers, the Leaf Blower has something for everyone. The on-trail snack stops (packed with goodies from a host of local supporters) have achieved near-legendary status so no worries on bonking.

And after you've gotten your share of single track, adjourn back to homebase for a catered cookout, a few local brews, live music from local legends Dale & Darcy, and the requisite telling of tall tales around the camp fire. Your registration covers the rides, snacks, cookout, a beverage, a bag o' goodies, and sweet pair of Darn Tough Vermont Socks!

Register early becuase we expect the event to sell out quickly! Early Bird pricing ends Friday 9/22. (And SMBC members get $15 off -- check your email for the coupon code!) Day-of registration opens at 8:30 a.m., with the early groups departing at 9:30 a.m., and dinner beginning at 3 p.m. Proceeds from this event go straight back to building and maintaining Stowe's trails so register early, rest those legs, and get ready for the best day of the year!

For updates and event info stay tuned to the SMBC Facebook page and website. See you on October 8th!
