Georgia's largest mountain ride, Six Gap Century 100 mile and Three Gap 50 mile bike ride, is held annually the last Sunday in September.

The Six Gap Century is an ultra-challenging route that takes riders up and down six of the steepest climbs in the North Georgia mountains. Riders test their stamina with more than 10,700 feet of vertical climbing over the 100-mile course. Elevations for the six gaps in this ride range from 2,949 feet to 3,490 feet. The toughest climb, Hogpen Gap, tests even the toughest riders, averaging a 7% grade for seven miles, with sections as steep as 15%.

The Three Gap Fifty alternative route offers half the gaps and half the distance, but is nevertheless a demanding and challenging course. Elevations for the mountains on this ride range from 3,109 feet to 3,280 feet.
