The Trek was created to raise awareness of public trees in our communities.  The event is
geared toward people who have the common interest and joy of riding bicycles
and of talking

This year's Trek des Trees is shaping up to be a fun filled community and family event.  
Beginning at Oakledge Park in Burlington, riders can choose between:

A. An educational bicycle rally - the rally is an opportunity to ride with a group while scouting
out dozens of questions related to the local folklore & history and questions about Burlington's

A group road ride traveling through scenic terrain of Burlington and surrounding towns
within the gorgeous Champlain Valley
(with an average pace of 15-18 mph).

If interested in the Rally, you'll need to organize a team of 4 people.  Your team will be given
all the questions and supplies you'll need to find the rally stops and complete your questions
or task. If you cannot put together a team, no problem!  A team will be organized for you the
day of the event.

Both rides finish at Oakledge Park to join together in food, fun, and prizes.  Prizes will be given
for the most correct answers overall by a team, most correct "local questions" answer by a
team and most correct "tree questions" answered.  Other prizes will be awarded for the most
original team name and for the best team uniform (use your imagination)!

Riders (
who are Certified Arborists) riding in the rally earn valuable CEUs while participating in
this fun community event!
