Join us for a Silver Comet ride from Rambo to Rockmart. This is a 30 mile round trip bike ride from the Rambo Road trail head to Rockmart and back, with a stop for lunch in Rockmart.  This ride includes crossing the trestle bridge and going through the tunnel.  This is a no drop ride at a 13 to 15 mph pace. We will not leave any man (or woman) behind! Please arrive 15 minutes early to prepare for the ride, make introductions and hit the trail.  We will start promptly at 10:00.  We look forward to seeing you for a great ride.
