Please register for this ride here.

Come to the Northeast Kingdom for a weekend of gravel and/or mountain biking. Ride Leaders will be there from Thursday to Monday night, so folks can stay for just Friday and/or Saturday night or arrive earlier/stay later. First come first served for reserving a spot inside Tom and Pat's house in Lyndonville. (Please vaccinated folks only!) Or there is plenty of camping in the yard. After the ride, drinks at the Tiki Bar! Breakfast at Cafe Lotti -- best bacon ever! Potluck BBQ at Pat and Tom's Saturday night.

There will be one formal GMBC gravel ride. Chances to do other gravel rides and/or mountain bike at Kingdom Trails before it closes for the season.

Kirby Mountain Gravel Ride - Class 2-4 route over Kirby Mountain to one of the most beautiful valleys in the Northeast Kingdom and beyond.  Two variations to get there - one via more class 4 road.  Then both travel along the lovely (pretty flat!) River Road to Gallup Mills and then up over Victory back to 114 and East Burke.

    The route is mostly well maintained gravel with light traffic. There are several long climbs and some long fast descents. The scenery is great we will stop a few times at the best views. Caution is advised crossing Rte. 108 and descending Canyon, particularly when crossing the covered bridge where on a sunny day the transition from light to dark can be tricky. Also, the deck of the bridge has treads that should be taken slowly. VT gravel at its best.

    A cue sheet will be posted as soon as available. It is also available on the GMBC RWGPS maps.
