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!

All proceeds go to the Dawn Pitchford Fund, which helps with the non-medical needs of the children with cancer. Dawn Pitchford was an amazing girl diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia when she was 14. She noticed the other patients without simple comforts like stuffed animals, balloons, flowers, normal pajamas, bedroom shoes, and headwraps. Dawn spent the money that people sent her to help other people. Even after she’s gone, her selflessness continues and the Tri-States 100 is thrilled to help such a great cause.
