Hello from the Atlanta 'burbs!

I'm a 35 yr. old mother of 2 (3yr. old girl and 1yr. old boy). I was really into bicycling when I was in college but, once I graduated I became distracted w/ other things. Last year after my son was born I decided to start riding again to get back into shape and get a break from the kids. I bought a used Terry Symmetry 6 months ago and I ride about 3x a week, 10-30 miles a ride sometimes w/ the kids in a trailer. My goal is to ride a century (hopefully by next summer). I love bicycling and it has been a perfect way to get a break from my kids, even if they are behind me in the trailer!

Well, I live in south Gwinnett. If I am taking my kids in the trailer, I ride at Stone Mtn. or the SCT. If I'm riding w/o the kids I have a 15 mile route from my house or a 20 mile loop in the Grayson area.

I have friends in Grayson - care to post your route? I usually do the SCT, and I should be working the hills at Stome Mountain too, but I'm always looking for new (ie. safe) road rides.

I got the Grayson route off of the Gwinnett Touring Club website. I've never joined or ridden w/ them but, they are nice enough to have route maps on their website:

It's the ride starting from Grayson High School.

I have a triathlete friend (Hi John - also a member of BF) who lives in Grayson. He invited me to ride with him once and I was looking forward to riding a few quiet backroads in the Grayson area. He took me on his training ride route --- the bike lanes on the Sugarloaf Parkway. What a surprise.

Next time I'm at Stone Mtn (weekends only) I'll look for a young lady hauling a couple of kids in a trailer and say hello.
