Camp and ride at Brighton State Park in the Northeast Kingdom. Camping is free, you're on your own (or all of us as a group) for food. Island Pond is close by with a grocery store, restaurants, etc.

Have you always wanted to ride the NE Kingdom, but it takes so long to get there, leaving little of the day to ride? Now's your chance. Camp, then ride. For pavement riders there are numerous scenic roads into Maine, New Hampshire, and Canada – more than a day's worth of riding For dirt riders, get ready. There are 40 miles of dirt in the Silvo Conte Wildlife Reserve itself, with other reserves nearby; there are a couple hundred miles of through roads, and numerous others to explore.

This is a "don't miss" opportunity. Email Muriel to RSVP.

August 22nd & 23rd - Dual-Sport Drive-In - Saxtons River, VT
Come ride, camp and watch some campy movies on Eben's lawn in Saxtons River on Saturday, August 22nd. There will be a light lunch before little and big bike rides (with some hero sections for you heroes) followed by dinner in the evening and movies when the sun goes down.

Drive-In Alumni

While the emphasis here is small bikes and Class IV roads, the motorcycle-oriented double feature should appeal to riders of all kinds, so don't be shy. There are two nice inns less than two miles away in downtown Saxtons River if camping isn't your thing.

Rides leave at 1PM on Saturday. Show up any time Saturday before lunch or come set up camp on Friday evening.

274 Kimball Hill North, Saxtons River VT (Technically in Westminster, but closer to Saxtons River and often considered Putney by map makers. It's in Vermont.)

Please, please RSVP by emailing Eben.
