The Bike Center
PERSONAL BIKES FOR EVERYONE. MOUNTAIN BIKE TOURING, TOO.
Personal bikes for each member of your family, including training wheels, tricycles, trail-a-bikes, baby seats, tandem bikes, and helmets, are one of the most popular features offered in a Tyler Place all-inclusive vacation package. Forget about the car and simply bike around the property throughout your week here.
On arrival, families can make their way over to the Bike Center where each adult and child is fitted with his or her own complimentary bike or tricycle (and helmet) for exclusive use for the entire vacation. Kids love the independence biking gives them, and adults like the feeling of community that family biking offers. Pre-teens and Teens enjoy a guided bike trip as one of their group activities.
For both beginner and advanced adult cycling enthusiasts, Vermont and Quebec's Eastern Townships offer great biking, all with scenic views from the seat of a bicycle. Join one of our included, guided bike tours through the back roads of northern Vermont or along the shoreline of the Champlain Islands. Or if you're fairly expert, test your skills on one of Chad Tyler's famous off-road biking tours – you’ll come back muddy and tired, but accomplished and well-deserving of your lunch!
The Tyler Family owns an additional 700-acre property within a few miles of The Tyler Place. Here, there are biking trails to test all skills. Quebec's Eastern Townships have great biking, too, so bring your passports and your appetites for a pit stop at one of the local bistros or patisseries.
