UPDATE: Registration is now closed
May 21-22: We couldn’t wait until August to head back to our favorite swimming hole; so in continuing celebration of National Bike Month, we are hosting our 2nd Annual Quarry Ride & Camp-out! If you ride with us from the Bike Recycling Program Shop, it’s a beautiful 35 mile ride through Watson Mill State Park, ultimately ending at a private quarry with a campground, swimming, grills/campfires, and canoeing. The quarry is located outside of Comer, Ga. and features a gorgeous swimming hole, full-service camp kitchen (with running water, covered dinning area, working stove, fridge, electric outlets, and plenty of camping spots). Just look at the pictures from last year!
Interested? Ok, here are the details. In many ways, this is a DIY event–we’ll be leading an informal ride that will roll-out from BRP at 10:00am. The route is unmarked and there are no SAG stops, but we’ll probably stop for a snack break along the way (we’ll post a turn by turn queue sheet soon). Some folks who have work obligations may announce a second wave that will ride up later in the day. If you want to go full bike-tourer, we encourage you to take this opportunity to load up your bike and kick-off the summer bike-camp season in style. However, if you bring your camping gear to BRP, we’ve arranged transportation, and we’ll gladly ferry your gear up and back. Sack lunch will be provided for all riders.
35 Miles too far, or maybe you don’t think you can convince the whole family to ride? No worries! If you and the family want to drive-up, cool! The quarry has plenty of car-parking! If you want to create your own route and meet us at the quarry, awesome!
