Our Weekly Survey Question

Which of our seasons do you like the best?


we can help!

The Northeast Kingdom Chamber is the tri-county's largest and only fully staffed chamber, handling travel promotion, community/economic development, legislative/governmental relations, business networking and promotion of regional projects.

The chamber, based out of St. Johnsbury with about 300 members, is conveniently located at the Green Mountain Mall, across from JCPenney.

We believe the best businesses in the Northeast Kingdom are Northeast Kingdom Chamber members.

The Moose Bike Ride
Date: Saturday, June 10, 2023
Time: 8:00 am

103 mile course - We gather at Mike's Tiki Bar at 8am with a start at 8:30 am. We head north up Route 114 through Island Pond to Bloomfield, then up one of the most beautiful and serene stretches of the Connecticut River before heading back through Canaan, Norton and Island Pond and on to East Burke.

The Moose offers miles and miles of wide open riding, on some of the most “car hungry” roads in Vermont. This is not a sanctioned race. As a “timed event” you must stop at all stop signs and obey traffic lights. But, hey, there are only three stop signs in the entire 103 miles of riding. As for traffic lights – you must yield to oncoming traffic at your left hand turns.
Join our Team Challenge: We break into teams of 3 to 10 and take the fastest three times of each team to determine the winner of The Moose Wheel. It’s a bragging rights thing. But, there’s also some beef jerky for each member of the team. Bring your own team or we can match you up with a team at the time of sign in.

Short Course Moose Loop - For those looking to ride a shorter distance, we start at Essex House in Island Pond at 9:30am and just do the Moose Loop, Norton, Canaan, Bloomfield loop. 67 miles.
