Join us for our 6th incredible trip up and down the proposed route of the Firefly Trail on Saturday, March 25. NEW THIS YEAR -- two starting points, a 100-mile route option, and two new SAG stops. Whether you want to ride 18 miles or a full century, we've got you covered.
Choose to start at 9:00 a.m. from Jittery Joe's Roaster, 425 Barber Street in Athens OR start at Pittard Park (corner of Parkview Rd. and Church St.), Winterville at 9:30 a.m. Routes closely follow the path of the planned Firefly Trail.
The full out-and-back route this year is 100 miles, rolling through Winterville, Arnoldsville, Crawford, Maxeys, and Union Point. Shorter options are available, making this a perfect ride for cyclists of all interests and abilities. This year we have FIVE great sag stops - all routes are fully sagged and supported. Pre-registration is $40, students pay $30, and day-of registration is $45.
Celebrate your strong finish with a party at the Roaster.
We'll have a cask of Terrapin made just for us and Your Pie will be selling pizza direct from their mobile oven. Members of the North Georgia Bluegrass Band will be performing for us as the Firefly Flicker Pickers Band until 3:00 p.m.
Registration is now online at Active.com!
A hard-copy registration/waiver may also be mailed to us with your check.
Check in on our Facebook event page, but don't forget to register online! See our flyer for more information. Registrants who do not end up riding are welcome to pick up their bags from Cycle Sport Concepts from Monday, March 27-Friday, April 7.
Will you only feel comfortable on a bike once the Firefly Trail is built? Then volunteer with us on the day of the ride! There are plenty of jobs you can do to show your support and help make the trail a reality.
The 2017 routes have undergone major changes from last year's ride. Please see full information here (all routes out-and-back):
