The BRAG Ride Experience
Thanks to our friends at "BRAG", Bicycle Ride Across Georgia, for inviting the AOC to participate in their big annual Spring Tune Up Ride in Rutledge, GA at the beautiful Sunflower Farm
It will be 3 days of riding, camping, and entertainment, as well as s’mores, plenty of opportunities to hang out with friends - new and old, and local HAPPY HOUR specials as well as live music on Friday and Saturday!!
There are mileage options every day. YOU CHOOSE THE DAY(S) YOU WANT TO RIDE AND HOW MANY MILES YOU WANT TO RIDE DAILY!! See the Brag website for mileage options www.brag.org
Please note you must sign up on the Brag site. http://www.brag.org/stu PLEASE ALSO NOTE IF YOU ARE JUST CAMPING YOU STILL MUST SIGN UP AS A NON-RIDER ON THE BRAG SITE. EVERYONE MUST HAVE A WRIST BAND TO CAMP AND RIDE.
There will be bands and food trucks onsite so even if you're just doing just the Saturday ride, make sure you stay and hang out for Happy Hour and the bands.
The fee (paid to Brag on the Brag website) includes camping, full support for the entire ride, shower truck, snacks and drinks at the rest stops, safety on route, bands Friday and Saturday nights. All levels of experience are welcome, as well as all types of bikes but we would strongly recommend a road bike or hybrid and experience on doing distance riding for a few consecutive days. It's not a race so you can ride at your own pace. . You will not be expected to stay together as an AOC group. There will be lots of other riders and you may find others that are your pace you'd prefer to ride with. We will camp together as a group and hang out in the evenings for the bands and at our camping area.
Maps are included but the route is clearly marked. There is food, drink and porta potties located at the rest stops along the way every 10 to 15 miles.
It's a ride not a race. There will be a Newcomers' Meeting every morning for first-time BRAG riders.
NOTE: For safety, a helmet is required to be worn during this event. No helmet, no bike ride.
Can’t make all 3 days? That’s no problem! You’re free to choose your days accordingly as what works best for you!
