CHECK BACK HERE VERY SOON!
Our fervent hope that by that date the State of Connecticut and local towns will deem it safe to gather in a large group (outdoors, of course) and we will be able to obtain all necessary permits.
This will be a full-blown event that makes the Bloomin' Metric® one of the premier cycling events in New England. We will notify you here and send out a notice shortly that registration has opened. Please check back here often for that notice or see the registration button.
The Bloomin' Metric® is a bike tour event for every type of rider from the novice to advanced cyclist. We offer four routes that travel along stunning beaches and through the classic New England countryside of Connecticut. The Bloomin' has such a rich history that you can read about here.
It's volunteers that make the Bloomin' Metric® a huge success year after year. If you would like to help out, click the button below and sign up ONCE THE DATE IS ANNOUNCED.
What Cyclists Are Saying
Here's what riders have said about the Bloomin' Metric®
"I rode my first Bloomin Metric this year. I all have to say is wonderful, you have this down pat! From the breakfast to the organized signup, to the great roads, to the police escorteI d intersections, the food stops and finally the festival, everything was first class!!! I enjoyed the entire 64 miles and will definitely ride again next year! Thank you to all the volunteers too!"
"This was my first time riding the Bloomin' Metric. I was glad that the weather held up and not thunderstorm or heavy rain. I really enjoyed the 45 mile route and plan on returning next year again. Getting to the location from NYC was a breeze. Parking was hassle free. I had a great ride."
"Once again a great ride at the Bloomin metric. Thanks to all the volunteers who make this such an enjoyable ride. Kudos to all of you."
"I wanted to share my Bloomin Metric 2018 experience. Started out overcast with wet roads, ride 3 miles and I flatted no problem, changed tube ride another mile or so. Second flat. Changed rode to the 6 mile mark 3rd flat. The ride is not going well. BTW the sag wagon and many friendly riders stop to assist. So off I go again, now 8.23 miles in I flat again. I decide enough is enough start walking back towards the start. Once again a sag wagon stops. He flags down Greenwich Bicycle's van. They come to assist and now I think I will continue. We change the tube again again not finding what is causing the flats. Off I go. I ride along and catch up to Ridgefield Bicycle Shop Club. I ride the rest of the day with them enjoy my ride the rest of the 100k Loop. So I want to thank you for a fantastic ride and support. And a shout out to Greenwich Bicycles, you made my day."
"Very nice day... a Bloomin' day!"
"I want to thank you for a great day. I had shared feedback last year about the slight change in 100K route from previous year (addition of a killer hill) and the fact that several food trucks ran out of food early. The 100K course this year was tough, as expected, but a great ride. The grilled cheese truck was back and all trucks seemed to be well-stocked. And, the weather held out. Anyway, I wanted to thank you for listening, for the complementary registration this year, and for another great experience. I'll be back next year."
