This ride begins from the Northpoint Church parking lot in Alpharetta. See image below for the location within Northpoint where everyone must park.
The "A" group rides the same route each week, which is referred to as the Yellow Creek route.
Roll-out at 8:00am
Average: 21+ mph
Distance: 55 miles This is a DROP ride. The pace is fast and the terrain is challenging. There is one regroup point at the top of the Yellow Creek Rd. climb.
The B Group departs about 5 minutes after the A Group to prevent the two groups from getting mixed up.
The Mt. Tabor route provides a designated stop approximately an hour and a half into the ride. There is a convenience store and facilities for using the bathroom. This is approximately a 5 minute stop and also allows for slower riders to rejoin the group. In addition to this designated stop there a couple of intersections where we stop briefly to allow riders to rejoin the group. If new to the ride (no problem) it will be apparent where these re-group spots are.
The Sugar Pike route offers slightly more variety in terrain than the Mt Tabor route. You should expect more rollers and sustained climbs. The most memorable will be the climb on Eperson; which although short, is very steep. Thankfully they regroup at the top providing everyone an opportunity to grab a bite to eat or just recover.
Currently they have a designated stop approximately 1.33 hours into the ride which provides an opportunity to use the bathroom and for the ride to regroup. In keeping with their overall vision for the ride; they also provide for regrouping to occur at several intersections on the ride; generally after significant efforts. If new to the ride just be alert to the queues provided by those who have been around for a while to know where these locations are.
The B Group ride is open to everyone. Our goal is to have a safe, friendly and challenging ride for all.
