End of Season Party - CANCELLED

Regretfully, the board has decided to to cancel our end of season party scheduled for November 7th due to the  current Covid situation.  We are disappointed that we had to present our members with yet another cancelled event but as you can imagine, trying to schedule a large event right now is an uphill battle and in the end we saw no path forward. We are looking at alternatives for when things settle down like adding a dinner to the kick off party.  We do still very much want to celebrate with everyone and we will come up with something.  Sorry for the bad news.    

GBMS Board

Board Members Needed

GBMS needs YOU!  We have several open positions on the board.

What does being on the Board entail?

As a member of the board you will:

  • Attend board meetings either in person or via web conference typically one time a month during the off season.  We are all busy during tri season so meetings are less frequent during the active season. 
  • Work with other board members and coordinators with  event coordination.  We have very few events but those we do have need coordination.
  • Share your ideas to help make GBMS the best triathlon club in North Eastern Wisconsin. 
  • Typical time commitment is an hour or two a month

If you are interested reach out to a current board member or send us an email at  

Early Bird Registration is Open!  


Yeah, 2020 is almost done.  Good riddance right? We were planning to announce a special 10% discount on registration at our EOS party on the 7th.  Since we cannot do that we are offering it to you here.  Use code EBTRI2021 to get a 10% discount off of your registration.  Don't dilly dally as this special discount code will go away at the end of November.

Beanies are coming!


This year's member only FREE item is a high quality embroidered running beanie. If you haven't received yours yet you will be sent one in the mail since we won't be having an end of year party. If you don't receive yours by the end of the year contact Andy Bischoff. 

Want a New Bike? Need a Trainer?

If you have been a member for a while you are probably aware that Pete's Garage offers our club a special year end buy of bikes at great prices.  However, like everything else this year, things are a little bit different.  Covid has messed up the normal supply chain on bikes so a large  club buy is not going to work.  However, Pete's will work with members individually to get you an awesome bike at a great price. It just might take a little more work than normal.  They are also offering trainers at 10% off but if you want one you need to contact them soon as stock is limited.   For more information contact Kurt Schwiesow at Pete's Garage.


Virtual Bike Training

We know that a lot of our members use Zwift but if you are looking for a free way to train, Zack Welhouse is  spearheading an initiative to get our GBMS members to interact digitally freely (at least during Covid) on the RGT platform. For more details CLICK HERE
