Here's the classic Land of Sunsets Century route, from Rockmart.
Start/finish is the Caboose in Hiram.
Tom linked Rock of Sunsets; don't recall the name. It cut out one of my favorite roads, so I must've been trying to hit a mileage target?

Only a couple of challenging grades on this route, so it's a super endurance builder.
Great for a first Century or early season endurance building.

You are right. I was remembering the Solstice because is a longer ride. Rock of Sunsets is a variation of the Summer Solstice 200k starting in Rockmart that I came up with. When you get old your memory starts fading!

Also, don't know if that store on Morgan Valley is open currently, it seems to come and go frequently.


The store on Morgan Valley Rd just west of Hightower Falls Rd is open. I was there today, 5/28.

Not sure how long it will last but it is run by a friendly Cajun guy.

You are not going to get a rare prime rib and a dry red Cabernet Sauvignon served by a career server but they have water, Gatorade, chips, snickers bars and all the other usual bike ride delicacies.
