This might be listed as a Mountain Biking event this is "technically" NOT just a mountain biking event...it's GRAVEL & DIRT BABY! This route will be best attacked with a Gravel or CX bike.
This is a proper D5 effort - but at a moderate pace since I'll be training on the 29+ bikepacking rig in some cold weather gear - start time temps are looking below freezing, so plan well for that.
When the local trail status says closed, it is time to ride gravel. In fact it is always time to ride gravel! RAIN OR SHINE EVENT, cancelled only under the threat of severe storms. Dirty Sheets is a 22.7 mile loop, this premiere trail & gravel route is in South Fulton County in the City of Chattahoochee Hills. We will be hitting small sections of dirt trails (Mainly Yellow and Green loops). Surrounded by the famous Silk Sheets road cycling route, The Dirty Sheets is a rural and scenic gravel ride that will leave you in disbelief that you are so close to downtown and the airport. It can be ridden by a mountain, gravel or cyclocross bike..

If you want to ride fast in the dirt, gravel (and yes, some roads) this is for you
If you love drilling a dirty big ring, this IS for you
If you don't mind trading flesh with trees, rocks, gravel and/or dirt this is for you
If you have more energy than sense, this is probably for you too
If you're scared to ride on a mix of streets, FS roads or trails, this is NOT for you
If you want to look at scenery, this is not for you
If you have to ask what a CX or gravel bike is, this is not for you
