62 Miles of Fun

Back for 2024 is the original BWGA distance, featuring our patented 50% Alabama and 50% Georgia gravel. The 62-miler includes close to 5,000’ of up and down, a 18% maximum grade, three categorized climbs, and several creek crossings for your enjoyment. It’s quintessential—and wildly fun.

Stay on course with or GPS Routes

All three Border Wars routes are extensively vetted, researched, and engineered to maximize the awesomeness of your day. To keep you on track and get you home safely, we provide detailed GPX, FIT, and ridewithgps files for each. Today’s technology has all but eliminated the need for printed cue sheets, not to mention reducing our reliance on course signage. We love course signage…until oops, it gets misplaced or turned around in the wee hours before the ride. 

Routes can be downloaded to your phone or smartwatch, or for an optimal ride experience, a bike computer.

62-Mile Route

Update: Feb. 18, 2024. This is the final version of the 62-mile route, which is now 60.7 miles. There was a bridge that was out towards the end of the course that we had to route around. Please make sure the file you download to your GPS is 60.7 miles and not 62.4.
