Group ride on a sunny day

Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around Lagrange, GA.  Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your biggest smile! Many rides are held subject to weather. It's a good idea to confirm dates, time and any specific requirements, too. Come out and enjoy new friends and experience new trails. We'll see you out there — and have fun!

Shop to Shop Century

Auburn AL and LaGrange GA

The second summer Shop 2 Shop ride is getting close. Ride great country roads, cross the West Point Dam and meet new people as the route links LaGrange GA and Auburn AL. This year we will start from LaGrange and Auburn at about the same time. 6:00 central in Auburn and 6:30 in LaGrange. We will have one great rest stop at about the half way point between the shops and a sweep vehicle along to route to assist with any issue that may arise while you are on the ride. When you arrive at the shop you there will be refreshments, smoothies, and a free bike wipe down and chain lube. If you want to experience the half century route, with 2150 feet elevation, you can relax and know you have a ride home, there will be shuttles at both ends (pre-registration required). Or go for the gusto and do the whole century from one shop and then back to the start point. Registration opens on June 10 on www.bikereg.com/s-2-s Route map is available on Strava https://www.strava.com/routes/13874026
