Seniors Cycle the Arabia Mountain Trail - Show and GO!

Needs a location

Loosely organized Show and Go Ride. No official ride leader. This is a HILLY ride. Set your own pace and go your own distance. Enjoy!!

NOTES:
This is a hilly, challenging course and there will be two options available. For those who cherish the challenge, a ride from Stonecrest Library to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit provides a robust 38-mile round-trip ride. For those wanting to put in a little less time and energy, a 22-25 mile ride will return to the start from Lake Alexander.

Come ride the beautiful, very hilly Arabia-Panola Mountain trail. This is a somewhat technical concrete path from Stonecrest Library (parking, bathrooms-water fountain) to Lake Alexander (≈11 Miles), where we regroup and, for those who choose to continue, another 8 hilly miles to the Conyers Monastery. Bathrooms are available at strategic points.

This is a beautiful, mostly remote area. Come prepared with water, snack bars, spare tube, pump, and tire irons, just in case.

All riders are required to wear helmets.

Ride will be canceled if course is deemed unduly wet.
