Cycling


There’s no more beautiful and challenging place to cycle than the top of Vermont.

And one of the benefits the Phineas Swann offers you is the perfect location to serve as your base as you explore the mountains, farms, trails, and roadways of northernmost Vermont.

Road Cycling

If you seek to test yourself on winding, hilly terrain with green trees and mountains whooshing past you, we’ve got the routes for you. If you need a more flat path to slow down and enjoy the sights of dairy farms, cheese stores and burbling mountain streams, we can direct you there too.

Darren & Lynne know the roads and routes of northern Vermont intimately. And they can help you plot out your path each day to make sure you enjoy the ride that’s perfect for your abilities and interests. They’ll make sure each day you’re challenged, but that every stop — be it a winery, local restaurant or just scenic overlook — is just what you’ve dreamed of.

Mountain Biking

There’s no better place to hit the trails than Montgomery, Vermont. This tiny town is such a mountain biking Mecca that it boasts not one, but two cycling shops. Both can give you the goods, and we use them as our go-to guides on where the best trail conditions can be found. Heck, in the late afternoon they’ve been known to knock off early and go with you!
