Horse farms. Strava segments. Dog chases. 30 miles. 2100 feet. 40% gravel. A little over two hours ride time. Perfect. This route is a jewel in Atlanta's backyard.
The 43 mile Conasauga Crusher gravel route reflects the rugged and remote nature of the Cohutta Mountains on the GA/TN border. Expect rough gravel, plentiful water and no cell service. A bear sighting is not out of the question.
SHAKE N BRAKE
The Shake n Brake route offers 46 miles and 4050 feet of punchy climbs and primo gravel located only 1.5 hours west of the Atlanta suburbs in the Talladega National Forest near Heflin, Alabama.
