By design, the B2VT Ride is not for everyone. This ride is for cyclists who are physically and mentally tough, excel in the face of challenges, abide by the rules of the road, and can ride 149 miles with over 8,000 feet of climbing in one day at an average pace of 16 mph or faster. The B2VT ride is not for novice cyclists. It is one of the most challenging bike rides in New England and if you sign up, you are expected to finish within the allotted time frame. We do not offer sag wagon service to the finish; you must finish on your own.
Due to the length of the ride we are pleased to offer riders two options in 2020.
149 miles - the full B2VT
113 miles - riders are transported to rest stop #1and ride from there
Registration for the 2020 ride for all returning alumni riders will open on Friday, December 20, 2019. General registration will open on Saturday, January 20, 2020.
