New Event for 2019!

NGCA be doing a dirt training camp that will be open to all members. This is a great opportunity for both the “dirt curious” and the old pro who’s looking for some great training.

Dates: September 7th & 8th  (Feel free to attend either or both days) 

Location: Jake Mtn Trailhead, Nimblewill, GA

Google Map Location:

Equipment: any bike with knobby tires including mountain bikes, cross bikes or gravel bikes.

Accommodations: Members are welcome to camp in the Jake Mtn free camping area or the adjacent national forest land in RVs/tents, rent a cabin locally, drive back and forth to their house. The only onsite facility is a port-a-john in the parking lot so this will be roughing it!

Rough Agenda:


  • 8a-12p 25-40mi gravel ride (there are a couple of tough climbs)
  • 12p-2p Lunch/socialize. Lunch provided by club.
  • 2p-5p CX clinic (barriers, mount/dismount, etc.), skills practice
  • 5p-9p story time, dinner (camper provided), hand-up practice (adults only)
  • Lights out – we gotta train tomorrow!


  • 8a-2p Have a couple of groups for longer rides. Gravel/singletrack/mixed options (great morning to preview the Fools Gold trails)
  • 2p Break camp/depart

In order to have adequate food supplies and ensure we have enough help for the skills clinic, grilling, etc. please sign up by September 5th. We look forward to seeing you guys in the dirt!
