This is a 50 mile round trip bike ride from the Rockmart trail head to the Georgia/Alabama State Line and back. We plan to ride one mile beyond the Alabama State Line. We'll be riding at 10-15 mph and will get a little spread out. So be comfortable with that. We will re-group both on the way out and on the way back at Cedartown Depot trail head.
- Optional -
This AOC 50 mile bike ride event will officially finish/end in Rockmart after the completion of 50 miles. However, outside of this AOC event, you have the option to continue riding with others who might want to ride another 50 miles on the Silver Comet Trail to complete a century ride of 100 miles. However, this option is not part of the official AOC event and you assume all personal liabilities and responsible for your own safety.
Please arrive a little early to prepare for the ride and make introductions before we hit the trail at 7:30 AM sharp! I look forward to seeing you for a great ride.
****Should it rain or look like rain this trip may be cancelled****
