Upcoming Green Mountain Bicycle Club rides

Here is the Green Mountain Bicycle Club’s rides for the rest of June. Please remember these important things about riding with the club:

  • All riders must fill out one waiver of liability per season.
  • Although it isn’t mandatory, we ask cyclists to sign up online prior to doing a Green Mountain Bicycle Club ride.
  • All riders must wear helmets and obey the rules of the road. Please do not ride two abreast if there is traffic in either direction.
  • In the event of inclement weather, ride leaders will notify those who have signed up in advance and post to the listserv if the ride is being cancelled no later than two hours before the start of the ride.
  • Riders below the age of 18 must have a signed waiver from a parent.
  • E indicates an easy ride, M is for moderate, and S is for strenuous.
  • Rides begin promptly 15 minutes after the meeting time.
  • All riders should carry some basic tools including a pump or CO2 cartridge, tire levers and a spare tube or patch kit.
  • Social rides are more leisurely versions of the mapped ride — usually the shorter route — with longer food breaks. Always contact the social ride leader before the ride to make sure those versions of the ride are taking place.
  • All riders are required to sign our annual waiver which is available at thegmbc.com. We also request, but do not require, cyclists to sign up for each individual ride so our ride leaders know how many people to expect.
