Ride RESCHEDULED DUE TO RAIN for Saturday September 10th!
Start time will be 8:30 AM from Sosebee Bike Park (see post below for more information).
There is a large group ride “brewing up” for Labor Day!
When: 8:30am Labor Day (Monday)
Where: Ride will start and finish from Sosebee Bike Park located at 465 Simpson Rd. White Ga. 30184. Take the same exit for the brewery but take a left right after the truck plaza on Grogan Road, follow it to a T with Cassville Pinelogging Road and turn right, follow that road to Simpson Road and turn left. The park will be on the right. It is only about 3 miles off the interstate.
Here is a link to a post about the park: http://bit.ly/oOMkef. The use of the park will allow on-site post ride fellowship. We need to keep in mind that this facility is one very generous man’s land and work so we need to respect the facility and leave NO trace when we leave. Additionally, there is a contribution box on site. I would expect all to make a contribution of some type. Mr. Sosebee’s goal is to use collected money to build a shelter and bathrooms.
We will use the same route and those who wish to do so can ride the full BBC Metic course. Since we will loose about 4 miles from not doing the run in and out of the Brewery this will lead to rides of about 48 and 60 miles.
There is usually a large group for these rides and it splits up in to pace groups from 15 to about 20+mph average. Furthermore, of late the ride has been splitting into standard and long groups at the store stop. The long group does tha BBC 65 mile route while the others do the 52 mile Holiday route. There is also usually a group that does a shorter ride of around 30 miles.
We will do a quick pre-ride meeting and try to get some pace/distance groups identified.
