Join us for a BBC-led group ride to preview the Grand Island Fireball course that we’ll be racing on next week!

Start and Parking:

Park inside Beaver Island State Park, Lot 4.  It is the first right upon entering the park as you head to the maintenance building.  Lot 4 is on the right next to the bathrooms.


Click Here to View the Course Page.   A 15-mile loop around Grand Island followed by 5 laps of a 1.8-mile circuit.  You won’t find it much flatter than this! This is a cooperative ride composed of an A, B, and C group, with a designated sweeper for the C group.  Start with one group and drop back to the next group as needed since we’ll all be on the same course!  Stick with our ride leaders and sweepers for the amount of laps below.


A Group B Group C Group
Distance 1 lap (25mi)  1 lap (25mi) 1 lap (25mi)
Pace 18-20mph 16-18mph 14-16mph

What You Should Expect on Ride Day:

  1. Please plan to arrive early to get into your riding clothes and get your bike ready.  You need a working road bike, helmet, and shoes.
  2. Check in with a BBC officer at the parking lot
  3. Determine which group you’ll ride with.  Your ride group is the same category as you would participate in for our club races.  Newer riders start in the B/C fields.  If you are a faster novice rider and can safely and comfortably ride in the A group, please ask a BBC officer for guidance.
  4. At 10am, we will be rolling out together for a neutral rollout from Beaver Island to Fisherman’s Landing under the South Grand Island Bridge.  (Remember, the sign-in is at Beaver Island!)
