  • August 24, 2024 9:15 am - August 24, 2024 9:16 am

    Please pre-register for this ride here.

    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.

  • September 1, 2024 9:45 am - September 1, 2024 9:46 am

    Please register for this ride here. 

    This route travels south from Vergennes to Weybridge via Route 125 and then west to Bridport and West Addison and back to Vergennes on quiet roads. The short ride is 45 miles (M) and the long is 60 (S) with roughly two miles of dirt roads to avoid riding Rt 22a from Bridport to Shoreham. There is no designated rest or food stop, but the Champlain Bridge restaurant is at the foot of the Champlain Bridge on the VT side. It is a possible stop if you wish to get food before heading back to Vergennes.

    There may be a need for an additional co-leader for this ride. Please contact Brian if you are willing to help out.

    Please pre-register for this ride here.

    Three rides, all following the same route for the first 25 miles with a food stop in Bristol.  The Metric Century is 62 miles (M) via Bristol and Vergennes.  The full Century is 100 miles (S) traveling down to the Crown Point Bridge and returning through the Champlain Valley.  Those looking for an extra challenge can do the Double Gap Century which is 113 miles and includes the Middlebury and Appalachian Gaps.

    Brian Howard will serve as leader for the metric century (62 miles). If you would like to be a co-leader for either the 25-mile or 100-mile rides please contact Brian.

  • September 29, 2024 9:30 am - September 29, 2024 9:31 am

    Please register for this ride here. Because there are no assigned leaders for these end of season rides, it is possible that no one will have access to this registration information during the ride, so please be prepared.

    At the beginning and end of the riding season we have leaderless rides from a set location.  These touring rides do not have assigned leaders and or a planned route. Due to often unpredictable weather during those months, distance and route is determined by whomever shows up. Only the start/meeting site is predetermined. There may be one or more groups and/or destinations.
