Come ride with us for the 27th Annual Up the Creek Without a Peddle Ride in Rome, GA.  This ride features the  scenic valleys of NW Georgia, with very little climbing and great support.  This is another great ride to build your endurance while the weather is ideal for riding

Registration opens at 6:30am on ride day.  We will meet in front of registration (in front of the Forum building) at 7:30 (See GPS above), where we can discuss who's riding which course (see distances below).  The ride begins as a mass start (about 500 riders) at 8:00. No one is required to ride as a group. There will be different paces for different folks.  

The route has only 700 ft of climbing for the 32 mi course and 1,200 ft for the 53 mi course, which are considered flat courses.  Support throughout the ride is abundant with support vehicles and frequent, well stocked rest stops about every 15 miles. The ride supports TRED Rome/Floyd, a non-profit in NW Georgia that supports cycling advocacy.  Ride will go on, rain or shine. No refunds or exchanges.

All riders must register here.  Ride distances are 32, 53, 71, 102 and 109 miles.  Cost is $35 by April 8 ($10 extra for T-shirt), increasing after that date, then again on day of ride.  Registration opens day of ride at 6:30.  Ride starts at 8:00
