We hope that Covid 19 will not be the issue that it was in 2020. However, we realize that some folks might still have difficulty traveling to Vermont. We learned a lot doing the Virtual component last year. Although our rider base of in person riders was lower than expected, the donations were increased. For that reason we have decided to continue on with a hybrid event. Our rider base and fund raisers can now be located literally anywhere. This allows riders to not only connect with Tour de Slate but also to be able to raise funds. Remember that Teen Challenge has been greatly effected in their own fund raising efforts. This will help!
