The GMBC executive committee still hopes that our club will be a model for good covid behavior and hopes that everyone on the rides will be fully vaccinated and boosted.

  • Please do not ride if you feel sick or have had a known recent exposure to Covid-19. 
  • If you are not completely vaccinated, please keep 6 feet of separation in the parking area and rest stops.
  • Please continue to carry a mask during the ride (in case of a mechanical or a store stop that still requests masks).

    A tour of pretty villages – a 60-mile (M/S) ride across the Canadian border.  Bring your passport or other required customs document. Also, you must complete the ArriveCAN app information within 72 hrs of entry. See ArriveCAN website for full and most recent information: https://www.canada.ca/en/border-services-agency/services/arrivecan.html).  If you are denied access into Canada, you will need to return to the ride start on your own because the ride leader(s) will continue on with the group. We’ll stop in Mystic for food and pass many farms along the way.  There is some dirt – about 4 miles total – and a couple of hills. A short version of the ride breaks off after Mystic and goes 45 miles.

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.
