Trans North Georgia
Mountain Bike Adventure
The Trans North Georgia is a 350 mile mountain bike route through the mountains of North Georgia on trails, forest roads and paved roads featuring challenging terrain, beautiful scenery and over 56000 feet of climbing.
All participants were required to carry a SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger to facilitate timing, communication and, if necessary, rescue. Live tracking of the event was provided by trackleaders.com. Follow along on the forum at Bikepacking.net!
If you’re looking for a place to stay and a ride to the start, the Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Getaway is offering shuttle service to the start and pick up from the end. Mulberry Gap is located less than 1/2 mile off of the route near the halfway point.
The 2011 TNGA starts at 8AM on September 3 and registration is limited to 40 participants. There is NO registration fee. The field starts at the South Carolina Border on Highway 28, east of Clayton Georgia, heads west and has nearly 9 days to follow the route to the Alabama border on Highway 20, west of Rome, Georgia.

TNGA ride is being called due to weather conditions. We’ve got vehicles going out to pick up riders now so stay tuned. It’s pouring here but apparently much worse to the west.
