“Talbotton is a city in Talbot County, Georgia, United States. The population was 970 at the 2010 census. The city is the county seat of Talbot County.” – Wikipedia.org
“Talbotton was founded in 1828 as the seat of the newly formed Talbot County. Both the county and the town were named for Governor Matthew Talbot. Talbotton may be best known in history as the place where the immigrant Straus family got their start in retail sales in the 19th century. In 1896, the family acquired R. H. Macy & Co. in New York.”
Talbotton, Georgia Ride Experience Video
In this video, JOM of the Gravel Cyclist crew joins in for a mixed-surface ride led by long-time friends, Todd, Pete (and Preston) of Brickyard Bike Co. of Phenix City, Alabama, just across the Chattahoochee River from Columbus, Georgia. This 40-something mile / 70-something kilometre route departs Talbotton and meanders about the countryside, traversing a mix of gravel roads and challenging climbs. Quiet roads, beautiful scenery, fast descents, and perfect weather!

Which is of most importance…….. a towns water tower, post office, or rail system?
Good question! In terms of filming, well, all three. But in reality, I would say Post Office is #1, US Postal provides an important service, but #1 likely cannot function without rail systems when cross-continent mail is involved? I often see UPS, Fedex and Amazon trailers / containers riding on freight trains. I’m a huge advocate of railways, it has royally sucked seeing trucks replacing railways not just in the US of A, but also in my Aussie homeland. Water towers are quite important because they mostly remind me which town I’m riding through… I have tendency to forget… I also like those vintage water towers 🙂
