This weekend my younger son and I will be heading down to an area where the AT crosses. We’ll be riding in the Circle the Bald charity bicycle ride on Saturday, which is sponsored by the Southern Appalachian Bicycle Association.
We’ve done this the last two years, but this year will have one big difference: no Lance Armstrong.
Though we won’t be hiking the AT, we’ll still get in some hiking. In order to get to the finish line at the top of Brasstown Bald you pretty much have to hike. The road to top is closed that day and we found the shuttle buses that are provided are few and crowded.
