Come join the Cartecay River Bike Shop crew for a grueling (but rewarding) ride in the North Georgia mountains! The ride will start and end at Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-A-Way in Ellijay, GA, about 2 hours north of Atlanta.
Be prepared for a long day on the bike - 56 miles and 9,412 feet of elevation gain.
You must be self-sufficient; carrying all the water, food, tools, and spares needed to get you back to the finish. There are many bailout points along the route so you can vary the length and difficulty of your ride.
A few notes:
1. We're limited to 75 participants - registration is required through the Mulberry Gap website. It's on a first come, first serve basis.
2. We will have 3 sag stops. YOU need to provide your own sag bag, food, drink, nutrition. We'll take it to the various locations for you and will verify those stops in the coming weeks. At the moment they will be (1) Top of Fort Mountain, (2) Top of Windy Gap, (3) Top of Mountaintown.
3. Mulberry Gap will serve lunch between 2:30 - 5:00pm. Then we will need to clean up and start prepping for dinner which is served at 6:00 for our overnight guests.
