Need Ellijay GA. road cycling routes:

My family is renting a cabin outside Ellijay GA. and I'm trying to find some short road bike routes in the area, preferably from the front door of the cabin. While I don't have the exact address for the rental property yet, I have been informed that it's off of Flag Pole Rd. Internet research hasn't been particularly helpful, although I have seen a few routes that are within driving distance to our vacation spot. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Often times when I'm looking for a route and can't find anything online, I'll resort to google maps and utilize "street-view" to determine if it's a safe and worthwhile route. Apparently this feature isn't available in the area surrounding Ellijay, most likely due to it's rural mountains. I just don't want to waste time looking for decent roads while I'm there, and I'm trying my best to avoid highly traveled, windy mountain roads. Thanks in advance to all.

Is the cabin in the mountains? I've stayed in a cabin up that way and the roads were so steep going up to the cabin that I thought my car's front wheels might come off the ground as I puttered up in 1st gear. I can't imagine riding a bicycle on those roads. Even the 26/34 combo on my touring bike would kill my legs.

But yeah, you probably won't find a lot of those mountain roads mapped online.

Look thru the Cartecay Bike Shop website. They have a few route maps. There's a bike lane on route 52 heading east from East Ellijay.
