Royalton Community Radio Pedal Power to the People

Saturday, August 17, 2019

  • The dual tours pedal-off with a mass start at 9:30 AM from Antique Hill at the Tunbridge Fairgrounds. On-site registration/check-in opens at 8:00AM.​

    • Even if you aren't registering day of, be there 15-30 minutes early to check in and get ready.

  • The courses mainly alternate between dirt road and class four/unmaintained roads, with very little pavement.​​

    • Cyclocross (CX) bikes are ideal for this course, although mountain bikes are equally well suited for much of the terrain. Road bikes are NOT capable of handling most of the terrain.​​


Tour through scenic Tunbridge, Vermont

Starting and ending at the world famous Tunbridge Fairgrounds, PPP's two routes wind through some of Tunbridge's most beautiful woods, historic covered bridges, iconic dairy farms, bucolic backroads and hidden trails. The 30 mile "Beer Run" traverses rugged terrain, featuring breathtaking vistas, sturdy climbs, and secret stashes. The "Milk Run" is designed for the more laid back riders - the thirteen mile course flows along both sides of the Route 110 valley, and is perfect for younger riders and families.           


  • This event is a fundraiser for Royalton Community  Radio.

    • By participating in PPP, you are supporting local radio, and helping to keep RCR on the air.​
