This ride starts at Cauble Park less than a mile from the
Historic Acworth district. The park features a beach, picnic areas with grills
right on Lake Acworth.
We’ll roll at 6 a.m. and head to Cave Spring, not far from
the Alabama border, via country roads in Cartersville and Taylorsville. Once in
Cave Spring, you will find fresh, cold, drinking water bubbling from a spring in
Rolater Park, our first control after the start. Replenish your water bottles
here and enjoy the best drinking water around.
Also at the springs is a cave that you can stroll through for
only a $1. It’s at the spring and only a short walk. Even better, it is a cool
55 degrees; a nice treat on a hot summer’s day.
There is a snack bar at the cave where you can get soft
drinks, ice cream, cookies and crackers. Please note that only cash is
Other points of interest include the Historic Etowah Indian
Mounds, a very unique secret control in Acworth, and a quick tour of downtown
Acworth wraps up the ride. Bring your appetite and swimsuit and enjoy grilling,
swimming and socializing after your ride.
