Surge Sports, Inc. has announced the first Annual Brasstown Bald Buster Century in Georgia, US, a challenging bike ride up Georgia’s toughest mountains. The ride will take place on April 16, 2005, as one way, point-to-point ride that will culminate with cyclists finishing at the top of Brasstown Bald, the highest point in Georgia. The ride is a 100 mile bike ride with an 80 mile option and includes over 12,000 feet of elevation gain.
The Brasstown Bald Buster Century ride starts in Historic Jefferson, Georgia, and travels through the scenic Georgia countryside. As the riders progress to the northern end of the state, their route becomes more familiar to them as it turns into the stage which challenged Lance Armstrong in the 2004 Tour de Georgia, and will challenge him again in 2005. After the ride, participants will enjoy a complementary spaghetti dinner in the Bavarian alpine village of Helen, Georgia.
Due to logistical concerns, this ride is limited to the first 300 participants. For more information visit Brasstown.SurgeSports.com.
A portion of the proceeds from this event will go towards the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
