What we are about:

Camaraderie

We are more than a group of random cyclists that explore the outdoors ; we are a family of mountain bike enthusiasts who share a common passion. As a member of our group, you are never left stranded or unsupported, due to our strict no-drop rule, to ensure the safety and enjoyment of everyone.

Advocacy & Community
We care about the trails we ride & the community around us. We ride responsibly, support our local chapters (https://www.imba.com/teaming/clubs?state=Georgia&name=) and bike shops (https://www.facebook.com/notes/zombie-camels-mountain-bike-club/local-bike-shops/454860564720073) and encourage the conscientious use of the trails we love so that the next generation of bikers can experience the joy of riding them just as we do.
Bikes
We love bikes! We can't help but share our latest builds, wish lists and collections. Whether you are on a super light single speed, enduro, all mountain, XC, gravel grinder, BMX, converted road bike or a 35-pound downhill DH machine; Whether you're an all-day endurance rider, or like to send it over doubles and 6' rock drops, all are welcome.

Pedalpalooza MTB Fest at Blankets Creek

Blankets Creek Mountain Bike Trails

Camp & ride: Tanasi Trail System, TN (Hall of Fame IMBA Epic)

Thunder Rock Campground

If you are only going for the Saturday group ride, meet at Thunder Rock Campground parking lot so we ride out from there. Meet 10am, Ready To Ride RTR 10:30am. You can camp Friday-Sunday. Amazing rafting and kayak at Ocoee River. Plenty cheap non electric spots available. I will be camping at space #21. For those staying, we will ride other great nearby trails on Sunday. Something for everyone! Chestnut Mtn Trail to Thunder Rock is fast and technical. Old Copper Road Trail is very flat and easy. Well maintained, and hard to get lost. Lots of fun for all levels. You can ride Old Copper Road over to Brush Creek, and Boyd Gap is short and technical near Brush creek as well. While most of the singletrack trails require a good bit of climbing on fireroads to connect them, the singletrack is well-worth all of the effort! There are climbs and descents aplenty, as well as beautiful roller coaster trails that make you wonder which you've done more of, climbing or descending. With some sections rolling along the tops of the ridges and other deep beneath the boughs of mighty old-growth timber, the beauty of this area is astounding! The Tanasi trail system is highlighted as a Hall of Fame IMBA Epic ride and features miles and miles of flowing singletrack with fantastic views of the famous Ocoee River.

Camp & ride: Brush Creek trail, TN

Brush Creek Trailhead

If you are only going for the Sunday group ride, meet at Boyd Gap Overlook parking lot so we ride out from there. Meet 11am, Ready To Ride RTR 11:30am. Show up to ride Sunday for an awesome fast trail that's a hidden gem or you can camp Friday-Sunday at nearby Thunder Rock Campground so we can ride Tanasi on Saturday (Check the other meetup event). Amazing rafting and kayak at Ocoee River.I'll be in spot #21. Most of the trail is singletrack hard packed dirt. A few sections have some loose gravel, but nothing that's very difficult. There are some beautiful views of the Ocoee river and a some lakes. The views are better in the fall when they are not obscured by leaves. The most fun aspect of this trail is that it seems to be downhill both out and back. Generally it's very flat with some small "bumps". Climbing the bumps doesn't take any extra energy, but then you get to coast for a bit afterwards.

Fort Yargo night ride from downtown Winder

Apalachee Cycle Inc

A Zombie Camels MTB Club classic ride! This ride is a must if you call yourself a Zombie. It's also a lot of unique fun. All level, all speed, no drop night ride. Around 12 miles of night awesomeness. Bring handlebar light and we also suggest a helmet light. Each at least 250 lumens of power. We mee in downtown Winder at our friends Apalachee Cycles to ride into Yargo and then back to the shop. The parking fee money you save, go ahead and buy an Apalachee water bottle, nutrition...just anything to spread the love around. Or maybe a Zombie hat!
