This is not a beginner ride. Please be comfortable with a relatively longer distance on roads and hills.
(to the tune of Danny Boy)
Oh, AOC, your bikes, your bikes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side.
The winter's gone, and we never had snow falling,
It's time, it's time to go so we can ride.
Tired of feeling the winter blues? Grab your bikes and join us for some FREE fun on the beautiful back roads around Cartersville. Even in wintertime, this ride has amazing views, rolling hills and is just a great way to spend a few hours. We’ll be cycling a 31 mile loop beginning at the Budweiser Plant near Cartersville, Georgia. Following country lanes along pastures and farms, over the river and through the woods, and probably past a grandmother’s house or two, biking the back roads is a great way to clear out the winter blues with a friend or two or three or eight.
This is not a beginner ride, so here are a few words of caution. This is not a flat greenway ride. Please expect some hill climbing and the fun downhills that make the grind worth your time. We will be travelling on actual two-lane country roads which, although not heavily travelled, can occasionally cause a small parade of cars or trucks behind us so we will mostly be cycling single file to allow them to pass when they can.
We will be stopping several times to regroup, take a sip or just grab a breath. Although this is a no-drop ride, if you are unable to keep up with the group you may be asked to ride back on the shorter route to the starting point.
We recommend a road bike although you can ride a hybrid. For your safety, helmets are required. Please wear light or brightly colored clothing and have working front and rear lights for visibility.
Budweiser lets riders park in the lot to the right as you drive in. Park on the side away from the factory along the edge of the lot (they are closed on Sundays). Please do not litter or change in the open.
