The 14th annual Kelly Brush Century Ride in Middlebury, Vermont, is a scenic bicycle ride through the Champlain Valley.

The ride raises money to support the Kelly Brush Foundation’s multi-faceted mission, including improving ski racing safety, enhancing the quality of life for those with spinal cord injury (SCI) through adaptive sports equipment grants, advancing scientific research on SCI, and supporting the U.S. Adaptive Ski Team. Enter as a fundraising team or as individuals riding distances of 10, 20, 50 or 100 miles.
