STOWE, Vt. — Known by many as the ski capital of the East, Stowe is fast becoming a mountain biking mecca. With over 70 miles of single track; a town loaded with restaurants, bars and inns; and a luxury resort with its own Austrian brewery and 12 miles of private single track, Stowe is three-season destination for mountain bikers, spring, summer, and fall.
The shops on the Mountain Road, Route 108, offer visitors everything they need to get started. We begin all of our trips at Iride, one of three bike shops in town. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
