Various distances and start times.  As a GCBT member, you are entitled to a discounted entrance fee for the 2017 Cambridge Tour de Grand. The discounted entrance fee will include the event T-shirt (first 2,000 registered riders so register early!), fully stocked rest stops, route maps, mechanical and sag wagon support, AND a full lunch upon your return from your ride. For entries prior to June 5, 2017, your discounted fee is only $30 for individuals and $65 for a family of four.

To obtain the discounted fee ($5 off), simply write "GCBT" beside your name on the registration form. This process will apply to both mailed in registration forms and forms completed on ride day.
