One of Northwest Georgia's "must do" rides. The ride offers 28, 42, 60, and 101 miles options, all on scenic rural roads with very little traffic. All routes, except the 28 mile, will take riders through the "Pocket area," on one of the "best cycling roads in Georgia". Climb on 101 mile route can be omitted for revised 95 mile OR can be added on the 60 mile for revised 66 mile. Provides option for climbers and non-climbers.
The 28, 42, and 60 mile routes are mostly flat to gently rolling with a couple of moderate hills. Children may have to walk a couple of the moderate hills, if they are not experienced riders. The century route will include a short climb over Little Sand Mt. which as described above, can be added or omitted.
