CC Tour of N. Ga
Thanksgiving is getting closer and I dont seem to have anything to do as of today. There is no planned route but I would like to do something along the lines of a 200 +/- mile N.Ga tour in 3 days. And example of the route could be:
Day 1 (Friday) - Dahlonega - Helen GA = 54 "very hilly". Reverse Union Gap, Reverse Wolf Pen Gap, Jacks Gap and Unicoi Gap (6-7k ft. climb)
Day 2 (saturday) - Helen - Blue Ridge GA = 64 miles "very hilly" Hogpen Gap, Wolfpen Gap
Day 3 (sunday) - Blue Ridge - Dahlonega GA = 66 miles Rolling Terrain - Reverse Neels Gap
Total = 184 miles and I believe around 15k-20k ft of climb!!!
Blue Ridge GA
DeSoto falls in Blood mountain
It's not a race but it isnt exactly touring. More like a really informal staged event. It is plenty challenging but I believe it will be worth it with the fall folliage and beautifull sceneries. Tons of good beer and maybe some moonshine?
I know this is a long shot but if people are interested it would be really cool
