VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations
Inspired by Middlebury College professor John Freidin’s passion for cycling, VBT began as an open invitation to fellow bikers to join Freidin on his many rides throughout Vermont. More than four decades later, the company now runs bike tours in 26 countries, from Costa Rican rainforests to the Po River Valley in Italy. VBT excursions emphasize environmental and social responsibility, encouraging bikers to tread lightly and respect local cultures. Tours are rated according to difficulty and include accommodations, meals, equipment, guides, and support vehicles. Walking tours are available, as well. t+l trip pick Maryland, Cycling the Chesapeake Bay: Ride over gently sloping hills, feast on crab, and stay at historic inns.
