The Twin Rivers Challenge is an autumn ride through some of Northeast Georgia’s most spectacular scenery and follows routes carefully planned by an area cyclist. This year’s event is set for Oct. 27.
Hosted by Tallulah Falls School, the road cycling event is a fundraiser for student scholarships at the school. This high-profile cycling experience is expected to attract more than 200 riders this year.
Riders will have the choice of three challenging and scenic routes – 100K, 72K and 37K. The ride will begin and end on the campus of Tallulah Falls School with routes taking riders through both Habersham and Rabun counties and across two rivers – Tallulah and Soque.
All rides will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday Oct. 27. Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. Parking is located directly in front of the Tallulah Falls School upper school classroom building. Registration/check-in on the day of the event will be in the TFS upper school classroom lobby. Support and Gear (SAG) stops will be available at regular intervals along the selected route. A post-ride meal will be provided for all riders, with live bluegrass provided by the Tallulah Falls Opry players.
