Join us at Terrapin Brewery on Tuesday, December 2nd, at 6:30 p.m. for our last Chapter Meeting of 2014. Anyone who is interested in mountain biking is welcome and encouraged to attend. Check our Facebook Event Page for the latest updates.
This is a short easy trail that is fast, flowy and a lot of fun. A full lap of the Green and Orange Crush loops is less than 2 miles so we do laps. Meet at the gravel triangle on the Green Loop any time between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. If you don't see anyone at the triangle, wait a few minutes and you can catch us on the next lap.

If a ride is cancelled, we will announce it on our Event Calendar and Facebook Page.
Let's build some berms on Panic! We'll have a truckload of dirt, a four wheeler and dump trailer. We need folks to help load and unload dirt and build and shape berms. We will have some extra tools, gloves, and a water cooler, but if you have your own please bring gloves, hard rakes and/or shovels. Meet in the upper parking lot at noon.

Bring the whole family and let's ride! Join us at Trail Creek (East Athens Community Park) this Saturday 9 a.m. to Noon. We will have guided rides on the short beginner friendly Green loop, a raffle with prizes from local bike shops, and free pizza for lunch courtesy of SORBA-Athens. Bring your bike and a helmet. If you don't have a bike, no worries. We'll have several loaner bikes and helmets available in various sizes. Please park in the parking spaces along Trail Creek Street inside the park (or in the parking lot above it) and ride up the hill to the Green Loop trailhead at the gravel triangle.
Meet at the Trailhead (33°39'43.6"N 83°37'42.9"W). We are also looking for one or two extra crew leaders.

Let's rally ladies! Registration starts at 8:40 and we'll roll out at 9. This is the perfect setting to step out of your comfort zone and do something different. We will break up the groups by skill level. We have the most amazing coaches on hand to get you to the next level. Please plan on sticking around for lunch and fellowship. It's going to be a great time. Visit the Facebook Event Page for more info and to reserve a bike if you need one.
When: June 13th - 15th
Where: Nancytown Group Camp, Lake Russell WMA
We have reserved the Nancytown Group Camp at Lake Russell WMA. Free camping for everyone courtesy of SORBA-Athens. There are plenty of pads for tents and lots of parking so come one come all! We'll be camping Friday and Saturday night and probably riding a little each day (& night, depending on your tastes).
There is no electricity at the group camp, but there is clean water available and private facilities. Three trails literally begin at the campsite, so we'll be riding out from our camp. We'll be riding Sourwood, Ladyslipper, Chenocetah/Rhododendron, Lake Russell, as well as some longer excursions to other parts of the WMA.
