The Rock Cobbler is a stupidly hard thrill ride bordering on a race. It was conceived by madmen,

Red Clay Ramble
In 2018 the Red Clay Ramble will be a little less “Hot” and a little more “Fun” and about the same amount of “Dirty”. We are moving the date out of the oppressive August heat and into early June and also will wrap up our SGS series earlier in the year. Again we are partnering with Bike Walk Baldwin and Old Capital Racing for a gravel grinder that explores the red clay back roads of middle Georgia. The course is on a mix of dirt, gravel and paved county roads. While this course is super-fast with only 2,300 feet of climb, the Mid-August Georgia heat will test even the best racers’ endurance and the gravel, sand and red clay roads will put their bike handling skills to the test as well.
Distance: 56 miles
Elevation: 2,300 feet
WHAT IS THE DIRTY REIVER?
Riders will traverse gravel forest access roads that service the vast areas of forest covering the border region of England and Scotland.
The event will take riders through remote areas providing outstanding viewpoints across this spectacular part of the UK.
Due to the shared use of some of the course the Dirty Reiver is NOT a race. However, finishing times will be graded based upon the first finisher and these grades are detailed in finishing times on the event page.
