Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.
This might be listed as a "Biking" event but this is technically NOT just any biking event...it is the Murder Creek Gravel Grinder. Best suited for attack while on a proper gravel bike, CX bike (maybe a mountain bike if the gearing is favorable).
The 39 mile Murder Creek & 60 mile Double Murder gravel routes meander through pecan groves and past country churches on the rolling back roads of middle Georgia's Jasper County. The start is less than an hour from downtown Atlanta but it feels a world apart.
This is the 39-miler in a clockwise fashion with a few extra miles thrown in to include some of the good stuff of the 60-miler Double version...and personal preferences.
If you want to ride fast in the dirt, gravel (and yes, some roads) this is for you!
Oh, we plan on jumping over to the World Famous "Sac-O-Suds" off of GA16 for a funny photo op with Marisa Tomei - LOL :)
