Day 1 – Greenfield Routes

Ride Lengths

  • Long – 60 miles
  • Short – 40 miles
  • Family – 18 miles

Highlights

On the way out of Greenfield, you will pass GREEN RIVER Swimming & Recreation Area. It will likely be a little early to swim, but it’s only a couple of miles from our host locations. So it good for later this day on on Sunday. If you forget how to get there, just ask at the hospitality table

The highlight of the day will be a visit to Shelburne Falls; a quint, beautiful and bustling community situated on the Deerfield River and well known for the Bridge of Flowers. The historic downtown had remained unchanged for decades making if feel like like a totally comfortable place to hang out. There are lots of shops, cafes and restaurant right on the main street. But don’t miss walking down Deerfield Avenue to the falls. There you’ll see glacial pothole which are a lot more interesting to look that you would imagine. And hopefully, the new Public Market will be open by the time the tour starts.

The ride is too long and hilly for the family ride to visit Shelburne Falls by bike, so we have created a special ride for you. And after you finish that ride, if there are enough things for you to do around camp, Shelburne Falls is just a short drive.

If you ride the Shorter or Longer routes, we recommend a stop at The People Pint if you fancy a beer in a bike friendly place. If not, head back to camp and we’ll have Crooked Stick Popsicles with their sophisticated flavors waiting for you.
