It's quite possible that there is already a thread which addresses this subject, but I've yet to find it. So...
I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread dedicated to riding events of all kinds which are open to the public to join.
These events could be special fundraiser rides, kids & bikes get-together, Gran Fondos, cyclocross, road bike competitions, MTB, BMX and more.

Just a clearing house of cycling event information.

So, if you know of an event taking place in your area, give us the details. Anyone of us may just decide to pack our bags and participate.

I was just talking to my roomate about trying to get some Texas mountain bikers out for a cool little event. since I just started riding single track trails and have had my MTB for less than a week, I have never been here before, but it's supposed to be awesome!

they are opening back up on January 1st and my roomate and I were thinking about heading out there for the day! supposedly there is a big new years day ride and it would be cool to meet up with some other Texas TS people! if anyone is interested hit me up

You just need to go ride the Triple Bypass and be done with it

Nice, though Six Gap actually has 1k more feet of climbing.

Unless of course you do the double triple bypass (ride both days).

The other issue is that start of the Triple Bypass. Evergreen sits at an elevation of 7,220 feet vs 1,450 in Dahlonega, Georgia. Either way I'd be toast. Which do you prefer altitude or oxygen? I think Club Hypoxia asks that question
