GCBT is a non-profit volunteer group promoting recreational bicycling.

We run a full slate of day and weekend rides from April through October. Our rides range in distance from 40 to 100 km, and each ride is organized by a club volunteer. We all start together, but you set your own pace, and you'll always find another club member to ride with. Turn-by-turn navigation is provided for your smartphone or Garmin using Ride With GPS. Ride maps are also provided and helmets are mandatory. Come join us for scenic routes, quiet roads and great companionship. Membership is $30.  We are not currently running full size club rides due to Covid 19. However, our entire calendar is available to ride using turn by turn navigation from our club Ride With GPS account.  Get together with up to five friends practicing social distancing and enjoy yourselves.  You can access our rides going forward from the calendar below.  You can access our earlier rides from our Ride With GPS calendar at

For a number of years GCBT members have journeyed down to Kentucky for the Horsey Hundred. Our group typically arrives the Monday before the Saturday ride and rides Tuesday,  Wednesday and Thursday before resting on the Friday before the weekend rides. Club members 

Boris and Kathryn who have been doing this for years will serve as tour leaders. 


You can check for available lodging at here. Do this soon since lodging fills up quickly for this popular ride. For the weekday rides GCBT membership is a requirement.
