GMBC offers a free weekly time trial series that dates back to the 1970s! It is a low-key competitive event that is open to the public. The events take place every Thursday evening from early May to early September. They take place in the greater Burlington area, as well as in a few surrounding counties. Courses range from flat(ish), to hilly, to mostly uphill, and some are mostly gravel.
Although membership in GMBC is not required for participation, we would love to have you as a member. Every participant must sign ONE GMBC Rider Waiver each season prior to participating. (This waiver is valid for all club events during the season.) Please use the buttons below to sign the waiver or join or renew your membership.
The events start at 6:30 pm (unless otherwise noted), and to sign-up, fill out the Covid-19 attestation form (for Vermont State mandated Covid-19 tracking). The link to the Covid-19 form for each date is posted on both the Events calendar and the list serve announcement for that week’s race. We recommend that you show up at least 1/2 hour early so you have time to get the bike in order and to warm-up. The start-interval is one minute (in other words, every minute one rider will start), and once you’re underway, the goal is to ride as hard as you can for the length of the course and have nothing left at the finish. It’s as easy as that!
Wear your helmet at all times, share the road, be mindful of traffic, and understand that we cannot be a burden on traffic flow. Failure to adhere to these rules could result in the closing of a course due to complaints from local residents. Please find a bathroom prior to arriving, NOT at the race venue. Please remember that the roads are open to traffic and you are riding at your own risk. The race schedule is posted on the Events calendar and is also available in table form.
