Hike, Bike & Paddle Events
In 2009, the Northeast Kingdom Community Advisory Board of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont held our first Hike, Bike & Paddle event in Craftsbury and it was a huge success! The Hike, Bike & Paddle events create an opportunity for Vermonters to be physically active while enjoying the great outdoors. They offer an opportunity for individuals to enjoy hiking, biking, canoeing and kayaking. We provide a free healthy lunch to the first 100 participants, and free healthy snacks, including smoothies from our smoothie bike. The first 50 arriving participants also receive free Hike, Bike & Paddle T-shirts. Free bike and canoe rentals are available at all locations; however, rentals are limited. Participants are welcome to bring their own boats and bikes. In previous years, we have held events at Craftsbury Outdoor Center, Camp Plymouth State Park in Ludlow and North Beach in Burlington. Check our events calendar for exact dates and locations.
