17th Battlefield to Vermont - B2VT

April 17, 2017

17th Battlefield to Vermont - B2VT

134.3 Miles | 8,101 Feet of Climbing

When: June 10, 2017
Where: Bedford, MA to Okemo Mountain, VT
Registration: Sold Out!

June 10, 2017 will be the 17th 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 2017 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…

This year, Pactimo will have several Brand Ambassadors riding! Check us out at the Packet Pickup or look for us the day of the race. 

In 2001, a small group of elite riders from Team Psycho made the inaugural B2B ride after Harpoon purchased a second brewery in Windsor, VT.  A SAG wagon, armed with water, tires, tubes, and some tools, was the only support.  Upon arriving in Windsor, a keg (well, maybe more than just one keg) was rolled out from the brewery for the post ride celebration.  Since that time, the field of cyclists has grown, the course has been lengthened, and the vertical increased.  The spirit, however, has remained the same: a tough, bare bones ride with the reward of a great party at the finish.

The B2VT Ride, though epic, is not for everyone.  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, you should not sign up.

Registration is closed and this event is Sold Out!

What Happened at Big Frog 65

"The weekend before Big Frog I was covering an attack in a road race when I had an exercise-induced asthma attack (thanks, allergies).

One minute I'm doing my job, the next it felt like someone was squeezing my lungs and taking my breath away. I argued with myself on whether or not to get off my bike at the side of the road but settled on slowing down, recovering, and finishing the race (alone)."
