Mulberry Mayhem Gravel Grinder

August 3 @ 10:00 am 5:00 pm

Based out of Mulberry Gap, the Mayhem route will explore the western side of the beautiful Cohutta Wilderness Area in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Beginning with a scenic gravel decent laden with creeks and waterfalls you will make your way to the base of the notorious Mill Creek climb, taking you 10+ miles up to Lake Conasauga, Georgia’s highest lake. Following the summit you will ride the ridge bordering the Cohuttas with great views and vistas taking you to your final climb to Potato Patch Mountain, unless you choose to venture to one of the best overlooks in the south, Mountaintown Overlook. Either choice leaves you with an exhilarating 6 mile descent back down to Mulberry Gap where smiles, cold beer, and delicious food await. Oh yeah…there’s also that driveway.

Badger State BURGR95 and Fork Horners 47

July 7 All day

BURGR95 course will measure 95.5 miles including 66.2 miles on gravel, rough fire roads, fast single lanes and plenty of climbing. This ride is self-navigated through the wilderness of Lincoln, Langlade, and Oneida counties, unsupported except for one drop
bag point at mile 42. You will be responsible for yourself and should not count on rescue from anyone. You will be on the road for 5 to 7 hours and will not pass through any town ever. You will be in bear and wolf territory most of the time. Your phone will work most
of the time. All traffic laws and laws of nature apply.

The Fork Horners 47 course is generally flatter and smoother with none of the rough stuff that might be called B-roads out west.

BSG medals to top 3 male and female in both

Self-navigated by GPS or cue sheet

$20 registration includes BSG shirt and a drink from the bar!
