Thursday Night Paulding Summer Gravel Series - Week 3 - 6/14 @ 6PM

What: 29 miles of mixed pavement/gravel in North Paulding County
When: Thursday evening, June 14 at 6:00 PM
Where: Sammy McLure Middle School in the North Paulding High School complex, Dallas.

The Thursday Night Paulding Summer Gravel Series will be run weekly though June and July.

Week 3 features the same route as last week including five gravel sectors and six paved sectors for a total of 29 miles and 2100 ft climbing. Over 40% of the route is well groomed gravel including Lucas Lane, Narroway Trail, Benson Lake Rd and the fast descent on Mt Moriah Rd. Paved sectors include beautiful Saggus Rd, the climb and descent on Narroway Church Circle and the "Star Wars" segment on Burt Rd. A store stop will be available at mile 19.

This is a structured "no drop" ride open to riders of all abilities. No one will get dropped or left behind. Faster riders are welcome to form a group off the front.

Mountain bikes, gravel bikes, cross bikes, anyroad/adventure bikes, uprights and your wide tire frankenbike are all appropriate for this ride. The route can be ridden on a regular road bike but delicate cotton racing tires without flat protection are not going to hold up well.

Sunset will be at 8:52 PM and it will be completely dark at 9:21 PM giving us plenty of time to ride. The forecast calls for scattered thunderstorms and a high of 89°. Severe weather cancels the ride so check the forecast and this thread before heading out.

Sammy McLure Middle School is in the North Paulding High School complex on Grogan Rd off Harmony Grove Church Rd near Hwy 61 and Dabbs Bridge Rd in Dallas. Take Harmony Grove Church Rd east from Hwy 61 or west from Dabbs Bridge Rd. Turn onto Grogan Rd at the light and make the first left into the school parking lot.

Text or call 678.462.6698 if you have any questions or need directions to the start.

The weather report says a chance of rain at 8:00 PM and the way it has been going anything can happen between now and ride start time. I'm playing it by ear through the afternoon.

If the weather holds out then I will be 1/2 hour late and so the start time is pushed back to to 6:30 PM.
