Title: Guntersville Dam, Cottonville Climb, Descend Butler Mill Distance: 43 Miles Start Location: Poplar Ridge School, 747 Poplar Ridge Rd, New Hope, AL Date and Start Time: Saturday, 15 June, 8:30 AM Ride Leaders: Hunter Chockley, chockleyj@bellsouth.net, 256 527-8643 & Lewis Harmon, lharmon@mchsi.com, 256 651-4537 Description: Moderate ride of 43 miles that goes to Guntersville Dam (picnic area) followed by a climb up Grant Mountain via Cottonville. We will regroup at the cemetery near the mountain top. Then the ride crosses over Grant Mtn followed by a turnaround on Anderson Rd and then a Butler Mill descent. The cumulative elevation climb for the entire route is ~1772 ft and the overall average pace will be ~14-15 mph. The link to the cue sheet and map is: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28765812 Rest Stop: Dam @ 14 miles & Store/Station @ 20 miles (just off 431 Highway). Bring a cue sheet and/or a map and/or a navigation device and also have the phone number of the Ride Leaders and the phone number of at least one friend. Again, this route is 43 miles long and has 1 mountain climb up Cottonville. Be sure you can do the specified average pace for the distance. If you choose to ride at a much faster pace than the leader or deviate from the route then you are on your own.
