Muddy Spokes Club

The Georgia State Parks service has selected 11 parks with bike trails totaling almost 70 miles. If you ride all 11 trails and submit the card (stamped at each park) as proof, you get a t-shirt.
http://gastateparks.org/core/item/pa...s=152712.0.1.5


AllenG has already expressed an interest in doing this, and I'm going to knock out my first park tomorrow.
Are there any other GA foosters interested in doing this?

Also, any other states do anything similar?

I don't think CO has a program like this. We certainly have benchmarks, but no state recognized award.

Sounds pretty cool, though. Have fun!

Wow, that sounds so civilized.
If you add those up it's a little over 1400' elevation gain...kinda like one ride here.

Yeah, I'm all over this. I'd be there tomorrow but I have to clean up wind damage from Fay passing through.

or you could come this way some time and I'll take you on the 6 gap route. How's 10,000+ ft. of climbing w/ some at better than 15% gradient sound?
