Ride Information
One of Northwest Georgia's must do rides. The ride consists of options
of 30, 45, 62, and 100 miles, all on scenic rural roads with very
little traffic.
The 30 and 45-mile routes are mostly flat to gently rolling, with one
moderate climb.
The century route takes both 100-milers and 62-milers to Villanow at
about mile 30, where the century riders will do a loop that returns
them to Villanow. The route contains a couple of challenging hills,
but no mountains.
All options are fully sagged with SAG stops located about every 15
miles. All routes return to the starting point at the mall where you
can enjoy a postride Chick-Fil-A sandwich (included in registration
Last sweep of the course is at 5:00.
