62 Miles of Fun

Back for 2023 is the original Border Wars route, featuring our patented 50% Alabama and 50% Georgia gravel. The 60-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. 

2023 Sold Out

62-Mile Route

This is a rough version of the 2024 route. There is a bridge that just became out towards the beginning of all the routes that we are working to resolve. More information will become available as we work with the county, and or, find a different solution. Even if the route were to stay like this, it’s a killer route that retains the 50/50 GA/AL mix and still at 70% gravel.
