The 28th annual Up the Creek Without a Pedal ride will be held on April 28. This is a great ride that I highly recommend. bjp and I did it last year, did the 109 mile option, wore ourselves out, and enjoyed fine beverages afterwards. Strawberry ice cream showed out of nowhere at some time later in the ride which topped it all off.

Prices are as follows.

Early bird registration, $35 no-shirt option, until April 21
Early bird registration, $45 shirt option, until April 21 (no show/no shirt)
After April 22, ALL registration $55 with no-shirt option (remaining shirts may be available for $10 purchase on site during ride day)

Register below.

Forrest,

Thank you so much for posting the UTC info. I've been negligent this year since I'm not in charge anymore. Just thought of it last night and was surprised to see you had posted it.

Yes, I hope we will have good weather and see a lot of familiar faces this year. Bring some friends who have never done it before.

Couple changes: Routes will be 32, 53, 71 & 104. The organizer wanted to do away with the 109 and the climb. Of course, if you really want to do it, you probably would remember the route, but there would be no support.

The second sag stop on the 71 and 104 routes, that was in the field, has been moved up to Villanow at the intersection of Hwy 136 and E. Armuchee. We used to have one there years ago, when it was a general store. It is now a chiropractor's office and we are using his yard and carport. So, 1st stop at 19 miles and 2nd stop at 36 miles.

We will still have strawberry ice cream "samples," until we run out, at LCCL Strawberry Farm. This is last stop for everyone, but is only ice cream and water stop. Porta toilets available at the main entrance of business. We will be at residence entrance. Gets congested here so be careful.

We are not having riders take the trail back in from the stadium area. Got too confusing. You will return the same way you left out staying on the main road.

Post-ride food will be Chick-fil-a sandwich(or I believe a veggie wrap for vegetarians), chips, drink. We encourage you to go explore the downtown area and purchase some other refreshments, if you so desire. There are a couple places with craft beers. We are not doing the meal voucher this year.

Our main draws are always the beautiful scenery ,mostly low traffic roads , police support, and friendly folks.

Hope to see you!

Chris

Still feels very weird to see that UTC is in April.

Yes, Tim, it's $55 for walk-up registration (per the It's Your Race registration site) on Saturday plus $10 if you want a t-shirt and they have your size available.

yup, I talked with Julie and she seems intent to keep the ride in April. She does not want the ride to conflict with Mother's Day and graduations.

I only asked because BRAG Spring Tuneup is moving up to the same weekend next year and I was hoping maybe it could be moved back to May. But no dice.

OK, going to be there tomorrow.

I'll be tacking on the Little Sand Mountain climb which adds about 5 miles and brings the route back to 109.

Last year's route as a reminder.
