• Monthly Saturday Arabia Mountain Ride

    Stonecrest Library

    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.

  • Ride The Path thru Arabia Mtn/Panola St. Park

    Stonecrest Library

    10:00 AM start time--We will ride the Path through the nature preserve, over the covered bridge to Lake Alexander and onto the spur along the South Rockdale River Trail to the Conyers Monastery. Shady trail with lots of wildlife and LOTS of hills. Bring water and snacks, there are no store stops (in the first 15 miles) on the trail (there is a "cafe" at the Monastery & a store 16-17 miles out, for those who choose to go that far). End to end is just shy of 40 miles at a 11-13 mph avg. THIS IS A VERY HILLY COURSE. This ride will be cancelled if its raining or conditions are particularly wet. The ride may also be cancelled if the temperatures are predicted to remain below 45. Please check this board regularly or contact me if you are uncertain. It is a good idea to carry the following on this ride: 1) Phone; 2) water; 3) a snack bar; 4) a spare tube; 5) something to inflate the tube with. WEAR A HELMET. There are no exceptions from this requirement. My phone number is:[masked]--put it into your cell phone. It might be handy if you have trouble finding the starting point or if you have difficulty on the ride and we are spread out. Or the weather creates doubt about the viability of the ride.
