For the 18th day of the Road to 24k challenge, you’ll get to cycle a beautifully curated route through Vermont. On this 15 km ride, you’ll get to see much of the natural beauty that makes this state so famous while getting a great workout. Let’s take a look at what you can expect to experience on this beautiful ride through Vermont. 

Dead Creek

As you begin this gorgeous ride filled with natural views through Vermont, you’ll pass Dead Creek. This flowing waterway acts as a habitat and home for many different species and is protected as a Wildlife Management Area. While the area itself is a protected refuge, you can still take in the epic views offered from the roadside as you cycle through this incredible landscape. 

Lake Champlain Bridge

As you continue to cycle along this route through the gorgeous green mountain state of Vermont, you’ll cross over the Lake Champlain bridge. The bridge crosses the gorgeous Lake Champlain and connects the Vermont side of the lake to the New York side. Built back in 2011, the Lake Champlain bridge replaced the previous structure that was demolished in 2009. 

Enjoy the sights of the beautiful lake as you cross the state border from Vermont into New York. Lake Champlain attracts tourists and visitors from all over. In the summer, visitors enjoy boating, fishing, and other watersports. During the winter months, Lake Champlain becomes an epic space for ice skating and winter sports.

His Majesty’s Fort At Crown Point

Once you successfully cross the Lake Champlain bridge, you’ll end up in New York state. At the end of the ride, you’ll encounter His Majesty’s Fort At Crown Point. It was built in 1759 and is the result of American and British troops from the New England and New York colonies. 

In the 1730s, the French built a fortress at Crown Point as well adding the historical structure and beauty of the area. The fort has seen quite a lot of action over the centuries and offers an epic historical trip on this exciting curated ride through Vermont. 

Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are beautiful and coveted for their incredible natural beauty and scenery. With black sand beaches, volcanic terrain, lush forests, and gorgeous ocean views, the Canary Islands offer some truly breathtaking places to visit. The islands themselves are part of an autonomous Spanish archipelago in the Atlantic ocean. 

While it may not be as easy to travel to the Canary Islands with airfare and other expenses, you can take in much of the beauty from the comfort of your home with VZfit. Travel to the beautiful Canary Islands and get some great cycling on Day 19 of the challenge. This 9 km ride is packed with beautiful terrain.

Pista Rural Ruta de los Volcanes

The curated 9 km cycling route through the Canary Islands takes place on the Cam. Pista Rural Ruta de los Volcanes. This road is part of the series of roads that make up Ruta de los Volcanes and takes you on a scenic route through the volcanic terrain of these beautiful islands. Along this route, you’ll get the chance to see the beauty and epic terrain of the island’s volcanoes and the epic lava left behind from eruptions that occurred centuries ago. Enjoy this scenic road as you get some great exercise. 

El Volcan

Ruta de los Volcanes is an epic road that traverses the rugged landscape that is home to the Cuervo Volcano. The Cuervo Volcano was formed after the eruption of the Timanfaya volcano back in 1730. When the volcano erupted, it buried the surrounding land in thick lava. This thick lava from the eruption is still visible to this day and provides an out-of-this-world landscape and spectacular views. The eruption also left behind massive craters that create epic scenery for your ride. Enjoy the otherworldly experience of this landscape during this curated route through the Canary Islands.

Many visitors from around the world flock to this area to explore the jagged, cooled lava terrain for hiking, climbing, and trekking through the volcanic landscape. These parks are packed with adventure and wonder and are sure to provide natural beauty and scenic views from the roadway as you cycle.
