Come explore the awesome Silver Comet and Chief Ladiga Trails. We will leave from Rockmart, GA (Mile 37.6) of the Silver Comet Trail on Saturday morning as soon as we have decent riding light and head west. The plan will be to ride to the end of the Chief Ladiga Trail and back to Rockmart on Day 1. This will be about 115 miles. Then on Day 2, we will leave Rockmart and head east to the beginning of the Silver Comet Trail and then back to Rockmart. Day 2 will be about 75 miles. We can add more to reach the 200 mile total if you want. There are multiple places to stop along the way as well as several good restaurants in Rockmart for dinner. I believe starting in Rockmart will be better logistically for newer riders because it's more centrally located than leaving from one end of the trail and you can ride out as far as you're comfortable. This would also allow us to meet up and eat as group back in Rockmart Saturday afternoon.
By leaving from Rockmart, it will also eliminate the need to ship/carry any supplies for the 2nd day.
Here's the information for the hotel in Rockmart.
If you never ridden the Comet before, you can read more about it here: http://www.silvercometga.com
/. It's an old railroad route that has been paved and is closed to motor vehicles.
This will be a self supported ride, no SAG is planned.
Depending on how many people show up, we may have different groups rolling together. This is more about enjoying the weekend than trying to pick up Strava KOMs.
