Of course, this event is dependent on state and local government direction and AOC Leadership direction.

We will adhere to any social distancing directives that may be in place.  The plan is to stop for a snack at Riverwalk Park in Rockmart.

This is a thirty mile round trip bike ride from the Rambo Road trail head to Rockmart and back.  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 the tunnel.  We plan to stop at Riverwalk Park for snack/lunch.

Please arrive a little early to prepare for the ride and make introductions before we hit the trail. I look forward to seeing you for a great ride. map.shtml
