Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Beautiful Back Roads Century

Has any one road the Beautiful Back Roads Century in Cartersville Georgia? I am interested in the amount of climbing involved.

Delorme Topo USA 5.0

It retails for around $50 depending on where you purchase and what maps are included. They have EAST/WEST and full country versions. Not a bad program. I use it exclusively for charting my bike routes. For everyday directions to/from new places by car I use online map sites.
