This ride will carry you around the Ocoee river, Georgia mountains, changes in elevation & lots of twists & turns, including “The Gauntlet” 133 miles of smiles. For this ride you need to hang up your phone, (no cell service in areas), put your game face on & have your head in the game to handle the curves. Each day you will be looking at around 7 hours in the saddle guesstimate. Facilities are limited in areas so might want to put a drink and snack on your bike just in case. Everyone’s skill level & style of riding is different so don’t be afraid to wave other riders around if your ride preference is more laid back. This ride is geared for experienced riders.

Rain predictions will cancel this ride because these twisties won’t be practical in the rain.

You will need to make your own hotel arrangements. Contact Lellwyn 205.914.4052 for more information.
