The GMBC executive committee strives to make our club a model for healthy and safe behaviors and we prefer that everyone on the rides is fully vaccinated and boosted.

  • Please do not ride if you feel sick or have had a known recent exposure to Covid-19 or flu. 
  • If you are not completely vaccinated, please keep 6 feet of separation in the parking area and rest stops.
  • Feel free to carry or wear a mask if it makes you feel more comfortable.

    The mostly flat 60-mile (M) loop heads up from Grand Isle over the Rouse’s Point Bridge and down through scenic, low-traffic, lakeside roads in New York and returns via the Grand Isle Ferry. The short ride (50 miles – E/M) circles Isle LaMotte and returns on the Vermont side. The Social Ride will also be the long loop but at a slower pace. Please contact Donna if you plan to do the Social Ride. Bring money for the Ferry ride back to VT.

    Please park in the ferry lot, not the fishing access lot. Let the attendant know that you will be taking the ferry in one direction.

    Those coming from the Burlington area may consider carpooling. Weather permitting, all leaders may do the longer version of the ride.

    Salisbury Ice Cream Social

    11:30 am-11:31 am
    July 4, 2023
    3 Mile Bridges parking
    118 3 Mile Bridge Rd, Middlebury, VT 05753, USA

    Please register for this ride here.

    The 28-mile (E/M) ice cream social ride starts on 3 Mile Bridge Rd off Route 7 south of Middlebury just past the Barn Antiques shop. The terrain is gently rolling and after passing Shard Villa and crossing Route 7, we circle Lake Dunmore, returning to Salisbury to take advantage of the Ice Cream Social being hosted at the Congregational Church of Salisbury on Maple St in Salisbury (at approximately mile 20). This is a very laid back, no drop ride.

    This route is available for GMBC members on Ride with GPS. A cue sheet and map will be posted when it becomes available.

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.
