Overview

Join this special event version of our classic and favorite ride: the Mountain Cove Ramble. Enjoy one of our favorite rides followed by a community Thanksgiving dinner. We will start and end at the Cedar Grove Community Center, and we'll help provide Christmas gifts for local disadvantaged children by donating $25 for each rider who joins us.

Pre-registration required, please!

If you're a novice who has tired of the same old close-to-home routes but may not want to head out alone into new territory, this fully supported tour with support vehicle and ride-along guide is for you. Still not sure? We have e-bikes!

If you're experienced--join us anyhow. This loop ranks among the favorite routes for local cyclists--and for good reason:

It's remote with little traffic.

It's generally flat to lightly rolling with just two notable hills but nothing long or steep.

And the scenery will keep us stopping again and again for photos--of barns, farms, old churches and the ever-present Lookout Mountain on the ride south and Pigeon Mountain on the ride north.

Highlights

  • Rural, quiet back roads of Northwest Georgia
  • Scenic farmlands and mountain views
  • Deep sense of local history
  • Community Thanksgiving Dinner at Cedar Grove Community Center

Itinerary

We'll cover 22 miles on a total of three roads! We'll meet at Camp New Dawn and ride a half-mile to the family-owned century-old farm at the base of Lookout Mountain. There, we can enter a corral and hang out with a small herd of very affectionate goats and friendly sheep. We then head a short distance south on West Cove Road until we reach the wonderfully named Hog Jowl Road. We'll ride through a canopy of century-old trees to the Cove Store, a country store at the southern end of the so-called "cove," where Pigeon and Lookout Mountains intersect. We'll then backtrack a mile on Hog Jowl, continue north along rolling countryside, cross over a gradual crest, and return south to our cars and dinner.
