Start of the 100 miler… or would it be the 60 miler later?

“In short, BWGA is a home-grown gravel grinder that straddles the border of Alabama and Georgia, where the gravel is vastly different between the two, and the only war is the mental struggle going on in your head to keep your legs going forward and the physical battle of your bike withstanding the punishment of the roads you’re riding. ” – https://borderwarsgravel.com

“Note on the Border Wars name: We are fully aware of the horrible atrocities continuing in Ukraine and the escalating crisis between Israel – Palestine and the Middle East in general, just as we are aware of the threats to Taiwan, South Korea, or even the issues at our own southern border. We are also mindful, on a local level, of the problems going on for water rights within Georgia and Alabama, for example.”

“BWGA is meant to be a fun day out on the bike and is 80% about the differences in the gravel between the two states, and 20% a friendly rivalry amongst friends and competitors. We love Alabama just as much as Georgia and all the states, really. We are 100% against any conflict, particularly those killing and injuring the innocent, and our hearts go out to anyone who does not have the same opportunities.”
