Wheels O’ Fire Century Cycle Tour 2013
Saturday, April 6, 2013
Location: Harris County High School – 8281 Hwy 116 – Hamilton, GA 31811
Mile Routes Available: 26 – 45 – 68 – 101
Rolling Hills – Moderate to Strenuous Terrain
Choose from the full century ride (101 miles) for experienced cyclists or the 26, 45, and 68 mile tours for intermediate or moderate skill levels. All of these options run through the beautiful Harris County countryside. No matter which length you choose, you will start your journey with an ascent up Heartbreak Hill. From there, the course climbs an altitude of approximately 550 feet in the span of about 12 miles. The route then descends just as quickly between miles 25 and 30, followed by 71 miles of gorgeous, up-and-down countryside. The Century Ride is certainly the most challenging but all of the routes are somewhat difficult as this area is known for its rolling hills.
You’ll find clearly marked routes, twelve fully stocked rest stops manned by plenty of friendly Volunteer Fire Fighters, and ample SAG support including route monitoring by the LaGrange HAM Radio Club.
A portion of the proceeds goes to the benefit of Harris County’s Volunteer Fire Fighters!
Every year, a portion of the tour’s proceeds is donated to Harris County’s volunteer fire departments. Since 2001, this event has raised more than $30,000 for a training facility that will serve all 12 of our county’s stations!
