Sunday - April 28th, 2019

Join us for a 64 mile Charity Bike Ride (Ride for Rangers) with a 22 and 45 mile course integrated. This will begin at 0800 and end mid-afternoon. A unique foothills course will be the highlight of this event, but the final 20 miles will be very aggressive. The event will be started in the downtown park (Hancock) and making a loop back to the park, where the food and beverage tents, and merchandise.

There will also be local Atlanta Motorcycle Clubs hosting a Rally in the area and attending the events and vendor tents, restaurants, retail outlets, etc. Downtown restaurants will be open and the Historic city is beautiful in the setting of Autumn in the mountains, with the weather still mild and the leaves still in color (weather depending). A weather contingency venue will be planned in the event of rain.
