New Ride: Northern Islands Interlude

Alburgh Community Education Center
Address: 45 Champlain St, Alburg, VT 05440, USA

Pre-register for this ride here.

Either of these routes can be ridden by riders of all levels. There are no climbs more than a few feet. The long Rt 2 section is traversed early in the ride to avoid heavier traffic later, and the majority of the later part of the ride heads north to benefit from the normal southerly wind.

Stores are located near the bridge between North Hero and Alburgh for both rides and in North Hero for the 50 mile ride.

Ride with GPS (RWGPS) links below allow you to access the route. If you are a GMBC member, your club RWGPS membership will allow you to download offline maps, print cue sheets, and have voice navigation.

    This rolling hill ride (60 M/S) passes through Georgia and Milton before heading to St. Albans Bay for a break by the bay and over to Swanton. The shorter version (40 M) turns around after the break stop. This ride has a short stretch along the shore of the Lamoille River and a longer stretch along Lake Champlain. There is only one store on the ride and it is at the point where the two rides separate.
