Join us for this early cool morning scenic and low traffic bike ride starting at the Budweiser Plant in Cartersville, GA.  They allow bike riders to park at the plant and ride. 

Our plan is to bike ride the 31 mile BBC route at a 2 wheel moderate pedal pace (not too fast, not too slow) and enjoy the country's rolling hills and amazing scenery. 

There are hills, some more challenging, please note: 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 to re-group & re-energize with a few gulps of water or Gatorade.

Up front notice: This is a no-drop ride so no one will be left behind, but if you can't keep up with the group and/or follow the bike course direction markings, you may be asked to turn around.  Road bike strongly recommended, unless you can keep up with the other cyclists on a hybrid bike.
