All riders with the GMBC must wear helmets and obey the rules of the road. Please do not ride two abreast if there is traffic in either direction. For mornings with questionable weather, please call the ride leader to make sure the ride is still taking place. Ride leaders are obligated to go to the starting point and provide maps but may choose not to ride if the weather is miserable. Riders below the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent. E indicates an easy ride, M is for moderate, and S is for strenuous. Social rides are more leisurely versions of the mapped ride – usually the shorter route – with longer food breaks.

Ride: Double Ferry South – 50 (M/S) miles starting with the Burlington to

money for the ferries. Please note this is the reverse of the way the ride
used to go.
