The Admission Process
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 134 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 except under extreme circumstances (medical emergency). If you do not think you can complete the entire ride on your own, you should not sign up!
2017 Admission Window: General registration opens Wednesday, January 4, 2017 at 8:00 AM EST. Special pre-registration will be available for all alumni (riders who have finished the B2VT course) starting on Sunday, January 1, 2017. We anticipate another fast sell-out this year!
Our 2017 registration link can be found here. All riders must complete and submit all required fields and supply credit card information for your application to be valid.
