The Queen Stage of The Sunday Ride. Typically a more orderly, paceline kind of ride than others in the ATLPTN, Kelleytown sweeps through pastoral scenes at a quick but usually manageable pace. After a punchy Alexander Lake KOM, the PTN regroups and settles into a steady effort. But wait until mile 54 when the pave tilts upwards for most of the last 14 miles. Godspeed.
Stone Mountain Village Parking Lot
Select Sundays9:00amApril through October
Half Mile Climb Averaging over 6%. This gets chippy but regroups at the top. Not advisable for those with a heart condition.
Lots of smooth, rolling country roads out in the middle of the course lends itself to steady albeit challenging rotating double pace lines.
The cruel irony of the name Klondike taunts rouleurs in the searing summer heat as the last 14 miles of K-Town beat down even the hardest members of the PTN. Up you go!
