The Green Mountain Bicycle Club supports and encourages competitive cycling opportunities in Vermont. We have our own Time Trial series every Thursday evening all summer long open to all club members. No entry fee or racing license is required, although every participant must complete a GMBC Rider Waiver once each season. We also have a Tuesday evening Criterium series (USA Cycling seasonal or day license required). Group training rides offer riders of different levels the opportunity to ride with others of similar ability.
Many GMBC members ride for the race team 1K2Go-Jackalope Sports Group and those jerseys are often prominent at the TT and criterium races. 1K2GO – Jackalope Sports Group began in January, 2020 (a relaunch of the previous 1K2GO team) with a focus on growing community, building relationships, and of course, racing bicycles. As a team, 1K2GO is broadening its horizons to include all events of cycling. Being a member of this team means being supported and being supportive. Goals are set individually, but achieved together.
GMBC members participate in and volunteer for local USACycling racing including the Killington Stage Race and the Green Mountain Stage Race which includes the club’s own Burlington Criterium. Volunteers for assistance with the Burlington Criterium are always welcome! Members also help with and compete in the Vermont and National Senior Games Bicycle Road Races.GMBC has regular training rides that include racers and non-racers on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and Saturdays during the riding season.
