Bikes and Beers Virtual Social Distance Ride, April 1-30, 2020 - FIND OUT MORE!

B2VT

June 20 2020
Bedford, Massachusetts, USA

2016 will be the 16th annual edition of the B2VT ride (formerly known as the B2B). In 2014 the course was altered to accommodate the new start and finish points but still contained most of the original B2B course (but was even more hilly!). The 2016 B2VT Ride will continue to be one of the most challenging single day rides in New England. By design, it is not for everyone.  This ride is for cyclists who are physically and mentally tough, don’t whine, excel in the face of challenges, know the rules of the road and can ride 130+ miles to the finish safely and without their hands being held. While it is an epic ride, it is not for novice riders nor the faint of heart…

 
Routes: 132 miles
Difficulty of Greatest Route: F - Ultra Distance and Climbing for events well over 100 miles
Time Zone: Eastern Standard Time (EST)
 
What's Included?

2016 B2VT commemorative bike jersey (Pactimo Ascent Jersey with custom sizing for both men and women)

Bragging rights for a lifetime…as long as you finish!

Mavic professionals will have their marquee yellow cars and motos on the course, ready to help with any mechanical needs. Also, their truck will be stationed at rest stops to help with any mechanical needs.

Cycle Loft out of Burlington, MA, a long standing supporter of the ride, will also have two of their vans on the road and another truck at the rest stops with professional mechanics to take care of you.

The B2VT Road Crew. We are partnered with the team at Streamline Events. A team we know well and we trust a team who knows how to get it done – and get it done right. Riders can call the Rider Assistance number on their wristband and a Road Crew vehicle will be dispatched. Much of the Road Crew is comprised of volunteers from Team Psycho, all are experienced cyclists that are veterans of the B2VT and other bicycling events.

The on-course medical team includes EMTs, nurses and other professionals.

All of the above are on course for your safety and to help with major mechanical issues but prepare as if you are riding without support. Ride with friends, bring your own tubes, pump or C02, tools, etc. Also bring a cell phone in case of emergency. The on-course support can’t possibly be everywhere at once and it could be an extended length of time before someone can get to you.
