Tue Training Rides

Looking for a weekly training ride to get the blood pumping?  The GMBC Tuesday evening training rides travel through Richmond, Hinesburg, Huntington and Williston mostly on roads with light to mild traffic.

Is this training ride for me?  Tuesday’s ride is for racers and/or  hammer-heads.  If you can maintain 18+ mph for 1.5+ hours, you’ll be fine.  There will be areas of pace-line at 25+ mph on flats and regrouping points.  Consider the Wednesday night ride if this ride is not to your liking.

Start times vary during the year (because of the sunset)!! Riding with front and rear lights is recommended all season. The exact start time for each week is announced on the GMBC email list serve usually a few days ahead of each ride.

  • Early season (through April): on the road at 5:30 PM or earlier
  • Prime season (May through August): on the road at 6:00 PM
  • Late season (September until ??): on the road at 5:30 PM or earlier
  • Bad weather (current or imminent): most likely cancels ride

Membership is not required for participation, however Membership has its advantages.

All participants must sign a waiver once per season.

Ride at your own risk.  GMBC provides guidance on safe group riding and sharing the road, but assumes no liability.  It is your responsibility to know and adhere to Vermont laws.

GMBC is volunteer-based and sometimes volunteers cannot make the ride.  This may lead to groups not being formed and the lack of regrouping points on the ride.  We encourage you to talk before the ride, form groups, talk about safety and have a great ride!

Temporary change for parking: The parking location has changed for the GMBC until further notice. It’s in a new lot that is about ¾ mile east of the ski area on Cochran Rd. It’s on the left (river side). For more information on parking, contact Kevin or see the latest Tuesday night training announcement on the GMBC listserve for clarification.

Links to some routes are listed below but become familiar with the roads beforehand in case of separation from the group. If you decide to drop out or change your route, let someone know beforehand.
