The 12th Annual Kelly Brush Ride rolls through the Champlain Valley Saturday as the race course winds its way through Charlotte and Shelburne with the start and finish in Middlebury.
Powered by VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations the bicycle and handcycle ride supports the Kelly Brush Foundation’s mission to empower those with paralysis through sport and recreation and to prevent ski racing injuries. Riders can choose among courses 20, 50 and 100 miles long.
“We have routes for riders of all abilities with beautiful views of Lake Champlain, the Adirondacks and Green Mountains,” said Kelly Brush Foundation Executive Director Zeke Davisson.
The ride is Vermont’s largest charity ride and draws more than 700 bikers and several dozen handcyclists from across the country and Canada. Last year’s ride raised more than $450,000.
