Second Sunday Ride – West Point Dam

Adventurous cyclists,

 The March Second Sunday Ride is a pleasant, 15-mile ride around and across West Point Dam. About 30 minutes drive from Auburn to West Point, GA. The route is entirely paved and very scenic along the shore of West Point Lake.

 We’ll ride by Fort Tyler in West Point, scene of a Civil War battle. A short walk around the Fort, so bring yer walking shoes.

 The ride will start and finish at the Chattabrewchee Southern Brewhouse. Plan to have a pint if you like and lunch, either pack one or get something nearby.

 Date: Sunday, March 10.
Time: 11:00 EDT in West Point (10:00 CDT). Park near Chattabrewchee Southern Brewhouse.
Road Conditions: All paved. Any bikes/tires will be fine.
Bring: Water. Treasure for a pint and lunch afterwards (or bring a lunch with you).

Meet at the Chattabrewchee Brewhouse:
709 4th Avenue (at the intersection of 4th Ave. and 7th St.)
West Point, GA.
(Leave Auburn around 9:00 to get there by 11:00 GA time. We’ll be on Daylight Saving Time)

 Wait, there’s more!

After our ride, there’s another in the afternoon. Golden’s and Trek of Auburn are sponsoring rides in the afternoon starting at Shaefer Heard State Park (near the dam) – road riding and trail riding. Here’s their announcement:

At last the longer days are here and the time has changed. Let us all get together and do some riding. Meet at the Shaefer Heard State Park and ride at 1:30. 
There is something for all! 
If you like the road, we will do 30-ish mile ride at a no drop pace through the Alabama countryside. If off road mountain bike is you thing. Ride the 7 miles of trails around the Georgia side of the dam from basic stuff to the technical of Hak and Yak. If you just want a nice relaxed ride with family you can enjoy the nearly 10 miles of quite park road way on both the Georgia and Alabama side of the dam. Goldens and Trek of Auburn will provide hotdogs, hamburgers and drinks. Bring a dish, snack, chips what ever and enjoy a meal starting about 4PM. The first social event of the riding season and you will not want to miss it.
