Club vs Club Race: BBC vs GVCC

August 18 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

This event is a special Buffalo Bicycling Club event. You must be a member to participate.  To join, click here.

This race is a revival of the BBC vs GVCC Club vs Club Race!  We plan on hosting friendly inter-club competition on a course that’s great for the all-around rider!  This is a special race because BBC member will be on one team, and every GVCC member will be on another team.  Regardless of regular team affiliation or usual club racing dynamics, for this race, we all work together to get the better of our collective competition in the GVCC.

This year, the GVCC will be hosting it in Rochester on their GVCC Mumford club race course.   It’s a rolling course with an uphill sprint finish!  It’s not too far away from the Buffalo area, right off the first Rochester Exit 47 off the I-90.


Park at the Caledonia Mumford Elementary School.  Address: 99 North St, Caledonia, NY 14423

This race is different from most because the only score that matters is your club’s total score!  Everyone who is a member of the BBC is on one team and everyone from GVCC is on the other team (regardless of regular team affiliations).  The winner of the BBC vs GVCC Club vs Club race is the club that scores the most cumulative points across the Cat 1/2/3, Cat 4/5, and Master’s 50+ events, not the individual winners of the races.
