2023 Meeting of the Grinds Fest

Slate Valley Trails is partnering with MTBVT to host the third annual Meeting of the Grinds, a cycling festival that melds the eclectic cultures of gravel and MTB into a come-one-come-all party on bikes. Held on September 15-17 this event is also one of Slate Valley’s biggest annual fundraisers, with proceeds going towards trail maintenance and construction.

The Meeting of the Grinds brings together mountain bikers and gravel enthusiasts with group rides for each genre and all abilities. Join us at the Fairgrounds Trailhead in East Poultney, where riders can access more than 50 miles of purpose-built singletrack and an extensive network of quiet gravel and class four roads.
