Events

GMBC is currently running an almost normal ride schedule. That said, certain Covid-19 safety practices will remain in force until the VT State of Health says otherwise. Intro rides, touring Rides, Wednesday Evening Training, VP-Saturday rides, Tuesday training rides, and time trials are posted on the Events calendar and all require pre-registration. Practice crits are still in discussion.

GMBC will continue to practice COVID safety, and requires the following from all participants.

  • Do not come if you feel sick or have had a known recent exposure to Covid-19.
  • Online signup is required for contact tracing. Signup information will be in the GMBC Listserv announcement and the Events calendar for each ride or event. Please do not sign up more than a few days in advance so your Covid attestations are current as of the ride date. 
  • Keep 6 feet of separation among people in the parking area and rest stops.
  • You are required to carry a mask during the ride (in case of a mechanical or a store stop). Even if you are fully vaccinated, stores may continue to require masks and/or other riders who either need or assist with mechanicals may not be fully vaccinated.  The mask is a courtesy to the community and your fellow riders who do not wish to have to operate as “mask police” or check vaccination status.

NEK Gravel Weekend – Two Mountain Gravel – Class 2, 3 and 4 roads 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 and relatively flat River Road to Gallup Mills and then up over Victory, back to 114 and East Burke.

Everyone, regardless of membership status, must have a signed GMBC Rider Waiver on record to participate in any GMBC event. You only have to sign ONCE a season and then all rides are covered.

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.

Users may change the full calendar view as well as the view on the sidebar menu. Options include: full, week, day, list, 4-day, and posterboard. Tours, time trials, crits, training rides and meetings are each color-coded for easy identification. Clicking on an event will provide full information including a map to the start site and ride leader contact information if relevant. Mouse over (hover) an event to see the same information but with smaller text and no map.

Please report problems with the calendar information to the webmaster. If you would like to have your bicycle-related event in Vermont or upstate New York included on the GMBC calendar, please contact the webmaster.
