***** NOT A BEGINNERS RIDE *****

 This is a no-drop road ride so no one will be left behind, but if you can't keep up with the group and/or follow the bike route directions, you may be asked to turn around or Uber your way back to Serenbe. Road bike strongly recommended, unless you can keep up with the other cyclists on a hybrid bike. Lastly, you must feel comfortable riding on the road in a group w/traffic

 

 

            Our Group Riding Plan        

   

Join us for this early cool morning scenic and low traffic bike ride, starting in the charming town of Serenbe.  

Our plan is to cycle the 41.5 mile route and take a quick spin through Downtown Serenbe. 

We will ride at a two wheel moderate pedal pace (Not too fast, not too slow) and enjoy the winding rolling hills.

This is NOT a flat greenway or Silver Comet ride, or speed race to see who can finish first.  We will plan to stay together as a group, stopping every few miles at each turn to re-group & re-energize with a few gulps of water or Gatorade. 

 

- Start & Finish Location -

 Pro Bike Repair Shop

9222 Selborne Ln # B Palmetto GA 30268

 

- Optional -

After our ride, we will drop by the Blue Eyed Daisy Bake Shop (http://blueeyeddaisy.com/) in Downtown Serenbe for a bite to eat and/or refreshment - plz bring $$$ to pay for what you eat & drink :)

 

     Important Notes
