LOS Greenbelt Ride 9:00 AM 16 mi/10-12 mph.

June 1 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Welcome June with a kinder-gentler ride to easy you back into shape. Come ride the glorious Greenbelt in Carrollton, a paved multi-use trail that winds around Carrollton while keeping you out of traffic.

We’ll plan to ride with a small group of no more than 8, going a relaxed pace of 10-12 mph pace with several rest stops to enjoy the scenery. (You can’t really go much faster due to the trail’s twists and turns.) But be sure to make a pit stop before arriving because the restrooms are still closed. (There are plenty of trees along the route if you need to make a pit stop while on course.)

Meet at the Hays Mill Trailhead parking lot: 480 Hays Mill Road, Carrollton, Georgia 30117.

LOS Group Riding/Paddling During the Covid 19 Pandemic

Shelter in Place is no longer in effect. These guidelines as of 5/27/2020

  • Join only if you are not sick, don’t have a temperature and have no indication you might be becoming sick.
  • Carry your own food, water, sunscreen, kleenix’s, face mask, hand sanitizer, bicycle tools, etc. No sharing and no touching of other people or bikes.
  • We will ride in groups of 8 riders or fewer. However, if more than 8 ladies show up for a ride/paddle, we’ll just split into separate pods of 8 or less. Groups will separate by beginning 2 minutes apart, with the faster paced group leaving first.
  • Maintain social distancing of 6 feet or more when gathering before a ride, at stop lights/signs, when dealing with equipment failures and at rest stops/ride completion, and of course at all points while kayaking.
  • A face mask while riding is not required, but plan to use it when we gather before, after or during a ride.
  • Remove gloves for bathroom breaks, then sanitize your hands before putting them back on.
  • Wash gloves and face coverings after every ride. Dispose used tissues safely.
  • When riding 2 abreast, you can stay less than 6 feet apart. (Riding 3 abreast is against Georgia law.)
  • When biking behind another rider(s), it is key to stay out of their “slipstream” to avoid their “respiratory cloud”. A separation of 3 bike lengths is mentioned as a rule of thumb. While the article mentions the slipstream in light of “drafting” other riders, which as a rule we don’t do😊, it seems valid and logical overall.
  • Don’t forget to participate in the sheer joy of getting out and about. Sunshine, fellowship and great scenery is hard to beat!
