Valley Ride

Our Six Gap team wants to give everyone a chance to experience this incredible cycling adventure, so we created the Valley Ride. This 35­mile valley option is a great introduction to the infamous Six Gap Century. Enjoy some of the most scenic mountainside in the Southeast as you pedal your way past Yahoola Valley, Turner’s Corner, and R­Ranch in the Mountains.

The Valley Ride includes 1 full rest stop supplied with a great selection of food and drink. Valley Ride participants will be greeted with a huge spaghetti dinner after the ride.
