We will be in Braselton, GA for Memorial Day. That is where our friends live and they are hosting a pig roast. We are then heading up to our hotel (staying at the Holiday Inn in N. Carolina..not sure of city but near the gap and skyway).
And yes our friends are only 10 minutes from Road Atlanta and we stay with them for the race.
Keep the tips up. We plan on a ride Sunday as well before heading to the hotel Monday.
The stuff I found might be out of your way from Braselton. Most of this stuff is up near and west of Helen. There's a nice ride from Helen up to Blue Ridge and takes you to Ducktown, TN. From there you can head north towards deals gap but we turned back south there. The road from Blue Ridge, GA to Ducktown is a nice curvey road that follows the river and it's a nice ride... actually everything along that route was nice rural riding and good roads. Here are some links that I marked when I was planning the trip:
Dalonaga is a great place to ride. Just north of Braselton.
yep, that's where we stayed for a couple of nights during our riding weekend. There's a cajun place on the square in downtown Dahlonega that is awesome... they don't take credit cards so take cash if you go.
There's lots of good riding in that area. You can find a good route just about anywhere you go.
I will ask my friends about that place. They ride a lot so I am sure they know where it is. An early Sunday ride may be needed with my buddy. His girl is coming but we can probably sneak out for a ride where he can go solo and a quicker pace.
We leave tonight after work for GA!!!! Staying there two days then heading out on Monday for the rest of the trip. Our hotel is actually in Dillsboro so we'll be riding around that area Monday and Tuesday and making the ride to the Gap. Should be a fun trip, we're all looking forward to it!
Have fun. My best bud lives close to there and the riding is supreme. Cherohala, anything around TWO, Blue Ridge, etc., it's a long list. Sounds like you've got some locals who can direct you to the places the police don't crawl. Scrape the tarmac for me.
