The Georgia & Alabama Gravel Bike Ride: Dirt, Gravel, Red Clay, Mud, Rain, Breweries & More!

This wonderful ride took place on August 3rd, 2019, starting from the small rural town of Lumpkin, Georgia, US of A. Not much is happening in Lumpkin these days, as evidenced by my short tour of the city before my ride gets underway.

My route would take me west out of Lumpkin, make a quick visit to Providence Canyon State Park, across to the small town of Omaha, Georgia for a visit to the Omaha Brewing Company, and later, into Alabama for a visit to the town of Eufaula.

Recent heavy rains made for fun times along parts of this route, turning the roads into a muddy and messy quagmire, the perfect situation to test a review bike! The video features drone footage that highlights some of the punchy climbs along the route, as well as other areas of interest along the way.

    I rode a very similar route in 1991, but was dry……….. very desolate.

    Providence Canyon is a really cool place to play around in. Those clay roads look cool too but I’ve had enough peanut butter ruts that drag your pedals. I’d insist on a clear, dry day personally.
    I’m just sayin’
