4 Points Vermont
The Four Points of the Compass Rose have been used in navigation since Roman times. It designates the basic and fundamental directions needed to find ones way.
Rick started 4 Points Vermont in 2015 offering high quality instruction to people wanting to learn to mountain bike. Brewery Tours were quickly added as an additional offering, or as a great combination after a morning of mountain biking.
We’ve recently added Artisan Tours, transporting guests to a local glass blower, a metal worker, cheese maker and a variety of artisans in the area. With enough notice we’ll tailor the perfect tour.
Thanks to our guests for taking this ride with us – because of you, we’re the recipient of stellar reviews!
New to mountain biking? Interested in the sport, but not really sure how to get started? Let 4 Points trained instructors show you the way by walking you through a step by step process to get you familiar with the equipment, proper body position, cornering, braking and a lot more. Lessons are two hours, which is usually long enough to actually learn the basics and still have time to do some riding.
Join a group of other new riders to learn the basics. Groups are limited to a maximum of 6 participants to ensure that everyone gets the most out of their time.
All lessons are given at the Trapp Family Lodge Outdoor Center. Please show up early if you are renting a bike.
Be dressed and ready to ride; Athletic or loose fitting shorts, Athletic or T shirt, Bike Shoes or Sneakers (NO OPEN TOED FOOTWEAR) and bike gloves if you have them.
Helpful to bring some water and a snack – also available in the Outdoor Center.
