Biking is Big in Dahlonega


The North Georgia mountains around Dahlonega have been a long time favorite of tourists who want to enjoy beautiful mountains. In the past several years the area has also become a favorite among road and mountain bicyclists. Dahlonega biking is a big thing!

Over the last six and a half years we have been open as a bed and breakfast inn we have seen first hand the popularity of these beautiful mountains with bicycle riders. Often we see them slowly climbing up the mountain in front of the inn on US 19. Below is a map showing the route (loop) from the inn to the north in the mountains.

There have been cyclocross races scheduled at Montaluce Vineyards in the past. Cyclocross bikes are a cross between a road and mountain bike. The races typically require riders to complete a course with off and on road as well as areas where the rider gets off the bike and carries it. It can be exciting to watch.

We also have seen a resurgence in interest in the mountain biking scene. Nimblewheel gap is a favorite. See our related post about  mountain biking neardahlonega biking Dahlonega. The Fools Gold 100 and 50 mile mountain bike races are held during some summers.

In September we have the 6 Gap Century ride across the mountains. Many riders participate in the event. Its a favorite Dahlonega biking event.

In past years we have also been host to a leg of the Tour de Georgia road bike race. Lance Armstrong has ridden in front of the inn a couple of times. The race was cancelled several years ago due to funding. Many of our guests returned every year for the event. The downtown finish line area is always festive and exiting. We hope it returns in the future.
