Brownsville, Vt. (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) – Following Vermont Governor Phil Scott’s announcement that large events can be held during summer 2021, Mountain Flyer Magazine and Ascutney Trails are excited to announce FLOW STATE, the Vermont Mountain Bike Festival, July 30-August 1, 2021.
FLOW STATE is a three-day celebration of all things mountain biking at the Ascutney Outdoor Center in Brownsville, Vt. Set in the heart of Ascutney Trails’ 35-mile network of singletrack, with access to an additional 20 miles of trail on private property, FLOW STATE will feature product demos, guided rides and clinics as well as camping, food trucks and beer, live music and more.
“Since we last hosted a mountain bike festival in 2018, our trail network has undergone a major renovation to enhance flow and increase signage to improve route finding,” says Erik Schutz, president of Ascutney Trails. “We’re stoked to show the mountain bike community our world-class trails.”
“Vermont mountain biking is the best in the East, and the bike industry is taking note,” says John Costello, Mountain Flyer events coordinator. “Plus, our ridership in the Northeast has exploded in recent years. It’s time to bring a big festival back to the Green Mountains.”
FLOW STATE organizers are formalizing plans, bike vendors, food trucks and sponsors for this summer’s Vermont Mountain Bike Festival. Early festival pass sales will be available to select New England markets on May 5, 2021. All tickets and camping passes will go on sale May 21, 2021.
