Virtual Brownwood Bike Rally From the promoter Trish’s Note: This is a benefit for the Brownwood Kids Club. I have been a supporter of the Brownwood Bike Rally for many years now. You are receiving this email because you have participated in Brownwood Bike Rally during the last few years as a rider or volunteer, and we wanted you to know that even in the midst of this ongoing pandemic, we will be holding an event this year from October 1-17. The format will be different as we will be riding solo or in teams, virtually. This means that you can choose your own route, and we will be challenging folks to log as many miles as possible over seventeen days. Hop on a bike, trike, trainer, bike-erg, stationary bike, penny farthing, or unicycle, and let’s ride together to create more educational opportunities for our deserving youth! Along the way, there will be challenges, opportunities to share and highlight your rides, and prizes aplenty! Plus, you get a sweet t-shirt along with your registration, and this year’s rider is masked up and ready to ride safely. Register here. If you would like to support via donating to the event or a specific team but are not interested in riding, you can do so here. We are grateful to you for your past participation and support, and we hope to see you on the virtual road and trails this October!

9-9-2020 Silver Comet Connector I took some time this past weekend to ride the Silver Comet Connector, the unfinished section of the SCT that will eventually link to the Atlanta Beltline. I’ve posted photos on Instagram if you’d like to see more from the ride. The SCC goes from mile 0 (just above the benches) 2.3 miles to Plant Atkinson Road. The section going under the East-West Connector is very muddy-think several inches of mud. I had to carry my bike for several hundred meters as it was unrideable. Past that, everything can be ridden. More about the Connector:

From Connect the Comet Track Removal Has Begun for the Silver Comet Connector The first on-site steps toward extending the Silver Comet Trail into Atlanta have begun! Rails and ties are being removed by CSX from the 2.3 mile section of right of way donated by CSX to GDOT. Work started at Plant Atkinson Rd, which will be the southern end point of the trail on the former railroad right-of-way. Machines are working north and the clearing project will soon be visible at Oakdale Rd. GDOT and the PATH Foundation are in the process of executing an agreement that will allow for completion of the abandonment. Cobb County will then survey the corridor and PATH design work is scheduled for the fall of 2020 with trail construction in 2021. This segment will bring the trail on a safe and level route under the East West Connector, South Cobb Drive and I-285.

This will be the first of two segments to get the trail to the Chattahoochee River. From Plant Atkinson Rd south, Cobb County plans to facilitate the construction of the trail to the Chattahoochee River within the Atlanta Rd right-of-way. Funding has not been approved by Cobb County for the Atlanta Rd segment but the Cobb Board of Commissioners will decide on whether it is part of the next SPLOST in early 2021. Once across the river via the Atlanta Rd bridge, the latest plan is to connect to the Whetstone Creek Trail and from there to the Atlanta BeltLine near Marietta Boulevard via a route TBD. While the State of GA has first right of refusal on the remaining 4.2 miles of track from Plant Atkinson Rd to Collier Rd, CSX currently has no plans to sell it and is actively using the line south of the Chattahoochee River for switching Howell yard. CSX just repaired its railroad bridge over Defoors Ferry Rd.

9-6-2020 All for One Ride From the Promoter: All for One 100 – 2020 Edition Due to present circumstances, it will not be possible to conduct the AFO 100 in the highly organized manner as was done last year. Even so, VPF in coordination with Webb Bridge Cycling and other prominent cycling clubs in the area, will conduct an informal event this year, on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2020, at 7:30 AM. There will be no pre-ride ceremonies, on-the-course support will be minimal, and there will be no post-ride meal and social gathering. Instead, we will gather in the NPCC parking lot between 7:30 and 8:00 AM, split into groups according to pace and distance, and head out onto our normal courses  for rides filled with fun and fellowship. Standard group ride etiquette and common sense will apply.

We heartily encourage you and your cycling club to join us for this event. There is no registration process nor fees. In lieu of the registration fee, and to continue funding the needs of the foundation, we ask you to consider donating $25 to $50 to the foundation, according to your interests and resources. Donations can be made online at any time via PayPal. Cash and checks will be collected at the event.

The Van Purser Foundation (VPF) is a non-profit charitable corporation (501(c)3), created by a group of caring cyclists, with a mission of pulling together to assist other cyclists in times of need. In 2020, VPF has provided tangible financial support to multiple cyclists suffering the serious effects of disease and crash-related injuries. The foundation’s support has been possible only through the generosity of many donors as well as the proceeds from the inaugural All for One 100 (AFO 100) ride that took place in October 2019.

9-3-2020 Trails Closed-Check Your Favorites This is the time of year that a lot of local trails host races, especially in the next 8 weeks.

9-2-2020 Allatoona Hunting Schedule From SORBA West Georgia Allatoona Creek Park MTB Trails will have the following hunting schedule for 2020-2021. The trails are closed during hunt times.

Northside Drive Closure From Atlanta Cycling The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) announced its contractors will close Northside Drive (Georgia 3) in Buckhead (Atlanta, GA) between Wesley Drive and Peachtree Battle Avenue for 90 days starting Sept. 8 as part of the Northside bridge replacement project. With this closing, the detour for the “Vinings Loop” will be to continue on P’tree Battle crossing N’side Dr. To rejoin the route, turn left past the hilltop (after the road splits) onto Woodward Way.

8-31-2020 Kennesaw Mountain Road Reopesn to Bikes From Facebook: “… Beginning August 31, the park will reopen access to the mountain road and the mountain road parking lot for vehicular traffic, to include bicycles…..Park patrons entering the Visitor Center will be encouraged to exercise social distancing, follow the designated traffic flow and wear masks in addition to following other Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines…..The mountain road gate will open at 8:00 a.m. and close at 7:00 p.m. Monday – Friday to allow for vehicular traffic (which includes bicycles). No shuttle service will be in operation at this time due to social distancing issues inside the shuttle bus.

New Bike Park in Upstate, SC (Source Unknown-from a reposted Facebook post) The Vic Bailey Subaru Bike Park is a community collaboration located off the Mary Black Foundation Rail Trail behind the Flock Shop in Spartanburg, SC. The park includes bicycle features like the wood and dirt flow trails which take mountain bikers on a roller coaster experience with little pedaling and braking necessary. Other features for slightly advanced riders include the wooden banked turn, pump track, and more. The park was made to suit all skill levels, built with progressive features so you can start small and advance at your own pace. There’s something for everyone to enjoy, but remember that safety comes first.

8-27-2020 Calendar Updates I’m working on October and November calendar updates this week. After mid Sept. races are looking somewhat sparse. There is only ONE confirmed CX race in all of GA, SC, NC, AL, and TN. I expect to see a few more in the next couple of weeks. Georgia Cross has cancelled the series. I know of some races in GA happening but don’t have firm dates yet. No word on NCCX’s season. Alabama is expected to have a few more races. There are some mountain bike and gravel events, so please support those races! As usual, road events wrapped up around the end of August in the South.

Some have asked about charity/century rides happening this fall. I can tell you after talking with the promoters or those in the know that both Six Gap and Beautiful Backroads in Georgia are happening unless there is a major lockdown.

What changes in Georgia laws regarding cyclists would you like to see? From Mike Moss: State Senator, cyclist, and cycling advocate John Albers has reached out and invited all area cyclists to the Crabapple Green, across from the Milton City Hall, Thursday, Sept. 10, 5:30 pm. He wants talk with people regarding what additional changes we need in our state to better protect cyclists. According to John, this will be a “Physical distancing” outdoor gathering. There are a number of informal ride groups that leave the Crabapple Green between 6:00 and 6:30 pm. He plans to conclude the session before the informal rides start.
This is a unique chance to talk directly to someone with the power to make positive changes for cycling safety. John was responsible for getting the 3-foot law passed in the state of Georgia and is currently the Georgia Senate Chairman for Public Safety. All Georgia cycling clubs and cyclists are invited.

8-26-2020 Marietta Tuesday Night Crit There are only 2 dates left for the 2020 Marietta Tuesday Night Crit! Sept. 1 and Sept. 8! A donation of $5 is requested to cover the cost of the police officer at the corner.

Some folks ride after the work day, so this is a good reason to head up north and check out the trails that will be used for the Fool’s Gold 38 and 60 Mile Mountain Bike Race.

8-18-2020 Georgia Cross Cancelled From the Georgia Cyclocross Series Covid-19 has created a situation none of us could have ever imagined. It was an incredibly difficult decision to make, but the GACX Board has decided to cancel the 2020 GACX Series. Considering local, state, and CDC guidelines and the impact they have on how we interact at races we feel like this is the best decision for everyone involved. While we are incredibly disappointed to not have the series, we anticipate there will still be a handful of races this fall, just not under the GACX Series umbrella. In the meantime, stay safe so we can get back to some bike racing sooner rather than later! #crossiscomingin2021 #gacxturns21in2021

Chattooga Century The Chattooga Century has been rescheduled for Oct. 10! One of my favorite rides–don’t forget to stop for hot cookies at the second rest stop!

All routes will be SAG’d and rest stops plentiful. Registration: $35 (if registered by October 7th) Registration: $45 (if after October 7th).

Allatoona Creek Park Workday from SORBA West Georgia Saturday, Aug. 15 at 9 am Join us for our monthly workday at Allatoona Creek Park where we’ll be putting the finishing touches on the first phase of the Flaming Wildcat Trail. We’ve been busy behind the scenes adding another half mile of fun and it’s time to open this new section up. You just need to bring water, work gloves, and a smile.

8-6-2020 Spin the District Cancelled From the promoter It is with sorrow and disappointment that we must announce the cancellation of all Spin the District events scheduled for the weekend of September 18–20, 2020, due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19. The Spin the District team has been hopeful that with carefully-enforced health safeguards in place, the events could proceed in some capacity in 2020. However, the latest uptick in positive tests and hospitalizations in Georgia has proven to be the final straw, as our insurer is now unable to provide the coverage that makes Spin possible. Planning and coordinating any event on this scale requires a lot of time, resources, volunteers, and constant communication with our city partners. While September is still a few months away and we hope that the pandemic will slow significantly by then, we can no longer justify the costs and resources needed to ensure the event can meet our own high standards. Instead, we’re turning our focus toward 2021.

Fools Gold From Mountain Goat Adventures We are excited to announce that under current conditions, the USFS in Georgia has given us the go ahead to proceed with the 2020 Maxxis Tires Fools Gold Mountain Bike Races with social distancing and CDC recommended procedures in place. The Maxxis Tires Fools Gold is scheduled for September 12, 2020 at the beautiful Montaluce Winery, in Dahlonega, GA. The 2020 Maxxis Fool’s Gold Mountain Bike Race will again offer riders a 38 mile or 60 mile course! Register by 8/10 to avoid the registration price increase! 300 combined rider limit – register early!

Both courses begin at Montaluce Winery and will have approximately 3 miles on pavement, then transition to gravel roads. The 60 mile course begins with a stout 3 mile gravel road climb and takes riders to some great “backcountry style” trails and lesser known roads. The 38 mile course heads directly to the Jones Creek Ridge Singletrack Trail along gravel roads, giving riders the opportunity to space out before hitting nearly 30 miles of fast singletrack. TONS of good stuff included:-Challenging course that features hard climbs, fast descents and sweet flowy singletrack that you will feel good about finishing.-Cash payout for the Open Men/Open Women’s classes in both the 38 and 60 mile race. -Cash prizes for all first place finishers in the non-open categories in 60 mile race. Full details on payouts/prizes can be found HERE. -Free Camping at Montaluce Winery! -Terrapin Beer and Moe’s boxed lunches for post-race calorie replenishment! -Highly visible Course Markings and Course Marshals -Finisher awards for all finishers in both races- Custom awards for all podium finishers in both races -Soft and comfy race shirt – size guaranteed if you register by the size deadline of August 28th. -Aid stations with plenty of calories, fluids, mechanical support and first aid supplies.

8-4-2020 Notes on Cyclocross Dates I’ve had few questions as to why I have not updated the cyclocross dates. Georgia Cross is currently looking at what the schedule will look like, and it may be modified based on the current COVID-19 situation. A decision will be made at a later day. Stay tuned! NCCX is also looking at changing the formats of the races and not having as large of a series. Tim has been posting regular updates on Facebook. I have heard that Alabama will have several CX races, and I’ll have the dates and venues once they are confirmed. TBRA does not have their CX schedule up yet.

Blanket’s Creek 3 and 6 Hour RAce From Mountain Goat Adventures Make plans to join us for the Blankets Creek 3 and 6 Hour Race presented by Free-Flite Bicycles on September 5th, 2020. The 2020 race course will be approximately 7.5+ miles and include the VMT “Race Loop” (no Kevorkian or 420 climb) Counter Clockwise. Then the course will run Dwelling Counter Clockwise up to the Rock and Roll Flow Trail, descend Rock and Roll, then climb back out on Chutes and Ladders to complete the Dwelling lap. None of the South Loop will be used in the 2020 event. This lap configuration maximizes the fun factor on each lap with long flowing descents, but also has some good climbs to spread the field out. The course will run COUNTER-CLOCKWISE on both trails Solo, 2 and 3 person team categories are available in the 6 Hour Race. The 3 Hour Option has a TON of categories, for those who would like to tackle a longer solo event.
IMPORTANT DATES: AUGUST 15th – EARLY REGISTRATION PRICING ENDS, AUGUST 22nd – T-SHIRT SIZE DEADLINE, LIMIT OF 200 RIDERS – REGISTER EARLY

7-29-2020 Race Venue Lost this Weekend Because of Racer Behavior  This is why racers should behave themselves at races! This happened at TONGA2 this past past weekend. From Topview Sports WE LOST ANOTHER RACE COURSE! We lost another course because of cyclist behavior. This is unacceptable. Habersham High School will NO longer ever let TVS use their parking again due to behavior in the feed zone! The land owner from across the street was so upset about the behavior of the people in the feed zone that he took his concerns to the Superintendent of schools. Do you realize that this kicks us out of all Schools in this county?

1. Urinating in the owner’s yard! We know of one person whom has apologized profusely and others that the owner saw. There is a reason we provide $1500 in portos for our events!

2. Leaving over 40 water bottles and garbage (Topview Staff cleaned up your messes prior to leaving at the end of the day).
Not our responsibility but we do it in order to continue putting on races! Clean up your own garbage!

3. He mentioned dogs tied up to his fence and this really upset him…..

Act like you want to be in our cities and be kind to the locals or there will be no more bike races!

7-22-2020 Georgia Cross Survey From Georgia Cross: We all recognize that we are facing unprecedented times in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. The GACX Board is continuing to monitor information from sources both within cycling and the more general guidelines being shared by the CDC, state and local governments. In order for us to make the best decision possible regarding hosting the series this fall we would appreciate your input in the following survey. We hope that you are all well and getting in plenty of riding!

Group Rides Hi everyone! I’ve been asked why I am not keeping track of which group rides in the Atlanta area have started or restarted in the last month or so. I generally do one big update on the Rides page in the spring over a few weeks and then small updates during the year as I get information about specific rides. The best advice I can give you is to join the Facebook page of your favorite ride and check on the shop/club’s website or contact them to see if it is going on. Some have started, then stopped again, then re-started. It’s humanly impossible to keep up with 100+ group rides weekly. If you do choose to go to a group ride, please use your own discretion. No one is responsible for you but yourself-whether you get sick, have a mechanical, or anything else.
