Hey! we’re here and this THING is happening! Details have been a little slow to materialize because of cross season activities, but it’s time to ramp up and get the beast moving.
There have been several pre-rides over the past 3 months and a handful of people have been introduced to the Skyway. I started off planning the race as a “traditional” Skyway route (Adam’s Gap to 148 and back) But, logistics seem to be tough from the Cheaha side and there is a hairy hwy section in the middle that entails dealing with more factions of the State than I care to right now. So, Perry Clark and the COGS group have stepped forward to offer their little gem of singletrack heaven for a perfect start/finish area. Perry has also offered his vast knowledge of the area to create a very good route that encompasses the Sylaward trail and some awesome forest service roads to connect to the Skyway. THIS WILL BE A BEAST!
There is another pre-ride this Sunday starting from the Lake Howard trailhead and riding the new route. I will be mapping the course and will provide a detailed map to load onto this site.
Registration will open next week on www.bikereg.com and our t-shirt design will be unveiled shortly thereafter. Scott Thigpen is doing the design and if you have seen any of his work you know you will not want to miss out.
You can also join us on our facebook group where there are posting every day.
Until then – Peace and Chicken Grease!
