NGCA Signature Event No 1:  

Saturday May 14, 8:30a 

The Cupcake Ride to Adairsville 

Lock it in!  We are all set for our first NGCA Signature Series Event for 2022 and it’s the Cupcake Ride to Adairsville. As many of you know, these events are for NGCA members only and are all inclusive events including great routes, planned rest stops and lunch after the ride; all paid for by NGCA.   However, you must sign up to ride so we can plan for food and beverages.  Details below: The route is on a very fun, low traffic and scenic route that starts at Dellinger Park, tours though the historic town of Kingston before heading north to Adairsville.  Awaiting in Adairsville will be a selection of food and drinks from the Bradley Farms Bakery.  Those calories will be burned off quickly on the climb out of 1 Adairsville and on the twisty up and down roads back to Cartersville.

Side Note For those who have enjoyed the support of Bradley Farms on our previous rides, you might be interested in helping them relocate to a new and improved store.  Their landlord in Adairsville notified them that they have to vacate and as such, they’ve been forced to find a new home.  You can learn the details here:
