    One of the flattest rides of the season with a food break at the 20-mile mark.  The 28-mile ride (E/M) circles Grand Isle and includes some dirt.  The pace will be more casual than the long ride.  Riders on the 58-mile (M) ride can visit St. Anne’s Shrine (bathrooms and picnic tables but no food) and also a fossil bed.  Unlike other GMBC rides, this one splits between the short and long at the beginning.

    Folsom School, South Street in South Hero – Those coming from the Burlington area may consider carpooling from the Colchester Park and Ride, Exit 17 off I-89, UVM or Veterans Memorial Park in South Burlington.

Notice

Always click refresh (on your browser bar) to be sure that you are seeing the most recent version of all events. This is especially important for race results and cue sheets! Calendar event dates, times and venues are approximate until schedules are finalized in Spring of each year. Ride times listed are MEET TIMES only because the actual ride time will depend on riders, route chosen, changing weather, etc. Evening training ride start times will vary as the sunset time changes and will be earlier in spring and fall and later in midsummer. Saturday (VP) training rides are the opposite and tend to start earlier in midsummer to allow for longer and cooler rides. Check the latest information on the GMBC email list for the most updated information.
