MTB Atlanta Presents - Barn Quilt Round Up '23
Join us for the first annual Barn Quilt Round Up, a mixed surface gravel bicycle ride/adventure/scavenger hunt and a fundraiser for MTB Atlanta on Sunday March 19th at 1 PM. Based on the Barn Quilt Trail of Chattahoochee Hills, we will give you a map and a 2.5 hour time limit for you to gather up pictures of as many of Barn Quilts as you can muster. When you get done present your pictures for points for raffle tickets that we will draw for $700 plus value in prizes.
You choose your route, you choose your bike. The ride will start at MTB Atlanta's "Goode Camp" which is adjacent to 8295 Atlanta Newnan Road and is the third driveway on the left as you turn onto Atlanta Newnan Road off of Hutcheson Ferry Road towards Serenbe. We will stage out of a field with ports johns with plenty of parking and we will have food trucks and a fire pit. Registration is a $45 donation through Bikereg to MTB Atlanta. Link will be up shortly.
What is the Barn Quilt Round UP?
The City of Chatt Hills has 40 barn quilts spread throughout the community.
The object of this ride will be to take a picture of as many quilts as you can in 2:30 hours.
Return to the start location, if you are late you will be disqualified.
We will randomly draw numbers from a hat, each quilt has an official city number.
If you have a picture of yourself in front of that quilt you move to the next round, if not you are out.
We continue until we have a winner
In the event of a tie, the person with the farthest away quilt wins, if that results in a tie we will flip a coin.
This ride will be open to all but requires a minimum donation of $45 to be eligible for prizes.
What bike to choose? All quilts can be collected with a gravel bike or mountain bike. 25 of the quilts can be seen from or very close to a paved road so a road bike will work. It takes about 4 hours to view all the quilts, but you only have 2.5 hours to finish the ride. Would a road bike be better than a gravel bike? Maybe!
