Leaf Blower Fall Classic

October 5 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm


Stowe Trails Partnership is thrilled to present Vermont’s favorite autumn mountain bike tradition: the 13th annual Leaf Blower Fall Classic Mountain Bike Festival!

This year’s Leaf Blower will be held on Saturday, October 5th, and will be hosted at Strawberry Hill Farm. With amazing riding for all ability levels, awesome vendors, homegrown food, local libations, and live music, there is no better way to cap off the season than with this one-day community bike bash.

As always, the marquee draw will be the rides, tackling some of the northeast’s best terrain and affording some of Vermont’s most epic views—whether you love endurance or are new to riding, we have a singletrack loop for you that’ll pass multiple aid stations and maximize the fun!

After you’ve gotten your fill of single-track, join us back at Strawberry Hill Farm for a variety of food trucks; some brews and beverages; live music from the popular local band, The Deadbeats; and a vendor village full of local businesses. Your registration fee covers the rides, vendor garden, aid station snacks, a post-ride beverage, and a food truck dinner.

The Leaf Blower is STP’s biggest fundraiser of the year (all proceeds go toward our work to keep the trails in great shape), so we appreciate your participation! We have some different ticket pricing this year:

Active STP member: $65
Non-member: $90
