The 12th Annual Vermont Adaptive Charity Challenge presented by Killington Resort is back and in person on June 17-18 with a new location at the Skyeship Base Area. Live music by Jamie’s Junk Show, food trucks, and a silent auction will be ready to go after the challenge.

Supporting Adaptive Sports

The Vermont Adaptive Charity Challenge is an annual event to enjoy the beauty of Vermont through cycling and mountain biking all while raising funds for the state’s largest nonprofit organization committed to providing sports and recreation to people with disabilities. The event returns as an in-person event for 2022 (after two years of virtual because of the pandemic), and we are excited to see everyone again!

What began as the 1st Annual Lookout Century Ride in 2011, in order to raise money for Vermont Adaptive, has grown into Vermont Adaptive’s largest annual fundraising event. Little did Phil and Joy Black know (owners of the Lookout Tavern) that their crazy idea to put on a century ride would expand into such an event.

Multiple road bike ride routes now loop through the towns of Killington, Pittsfield, Bethel, Barnard, Woodstock, Ludlow, Bridgewater, and Plymouth, Vermont. Quaint villages, the scenery of Route 100 and U.S. Route 4, and the Crossroad of Vermont Byway, the seventh of its kind recently designated by the Vermont Transportation Board, are incorporated into the routes.

The monies raised from this event support the adaptive programs and athletes of Vermont Adaptive year-round. It is also used toward scholarships—Vermont Adaptive never turns anyone away based on their ability to pay.

With many businesses and individuals getting involved over the years, the event raises upwards of $300,000 for the organization and has become a critical part of the annual budget. New ideas come and go for the event (including two years of a virtual event due to the COVID-19 pandemic) but one thing remains the same—this is an annual event not to be missed!


Check-in for this event will be on Friday, June 17 at the Skyeship Base Lodge on Route 4, Killington. Pick up your welcome packet and info on Saturday’s event. We’ll be there from 3-7 p.m. (and a bit before setting up if you want to come by then). If you can’t make it by 7 p.m. Friday, you can check in Saturday morning before your ride—just give yourself enough time to do so.

You will need to sign ALL sides of a waiver in order to participate in person on Saturday. If you’d like to speed up your check-in process, you can download the waiver and bring it with you already signed. Make sure to sign all sides – the waiver and bike safety code of conduct. You can also fill out the waiver online by clicking HERE.
