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
