I'm new to Alabama, Fort Payne more specifically, and I just wanted to know what was around in the greater area between (and including) Huntsville and Chattanooga in terms of clubs, shops, group rides, trails etc.
I'm a road rider and so far like the hills this area has to offer compared to Florida, so any good climbing routes would be appreciated too.
You should be near lots of good climbing. Desoto Sate Park is right there and Cheaha offers some of the most challenging climbs around. Don't let anybody tell you that Alabama is flat. Of course you know that by now.
