Join CVCOA for Age Outdoors and help raise funds to support healthy aging!

Grab your bike and/or walking shoes and join Central Vermont Council on Aging (CVCOA) for Age Outdoors: Bike & Walk for a Healthy Future! Support CVCOA's healthy aging programs and services for older adults in Central Vermont by registering and donating today!

This fundraising event on the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail will feature a biking route and a walking route, both starting from our registration/check in table at Oxbow Park in Morrisville, VT. The suggested biking route is about 15 miles one-way to Jeffersonville or 7 miles one-way to Johnson. The walking route is about 3 miles round-trip. Both bikers and walkers will start at Oxbow Park and return to Oxbow Park to complete their route. We suggest bikers start their route by 9:00 a.m. and walkers start their route by 10:00 a.m. However, our registration/check-in table will be open until noon, so feel free to start at your leisure and turn around at any point that is comfortable for you on the route!

We encourage all registrants to create their own fundraising campaign to support this effort. Ask your friends and family to contribute a dollar amount for each mile biked or walked, or suggest a fixed donation amount. Checks can be mailed to CVCOA after the event, or, click here to create your own unique fundraising page online to help us reach our goal!

All Age Outdoor registrants will receive an event t-shirt to show your participation and your dedication to supporting Central Vermonters to age with dignity and choice. To guarantee that we can order your t-shirt in time for the event, please register by Wednesday, August 31st. CVCOA cannot guarantee t-shirt sizes or availability after August 31st. Event Day Registration will be $50 at our Registration/Check-In if you prefer to get your tickets on the day of the event.

Lunch will be available for sale at eateries in downtown Morrisville upon returning to Oxbow Park from the biking and walking routes, with a special discount for Age Outdoors registrants. Be sure to grab a map with participating eateries from our registration table.

In addition to a special discount for eating/drinking in downtown Morrisville following the routes, River Arts is hosting a free multi-generational drop-in art space (supplies and materials provided) between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. There will also be a free screen-printing class at River Arts from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Are you unsure if your bike is safe for the trail? Power Play Sports in downtown Morrisville will be providing free safety checks for anyone registered for Age Outdoors! Lamoille Valley Bike Tours will be providing four free e-bike rentals for this event. Please arrive early if you would like to utilize one of the e-bikes as it will be first come first served!
