5th annual cycling event to offer new challenge

Planning for the 2019 Twin Rivers Challenge set for Oct. 26 is now underway with the first Scholarship Committee meeting that was held on June 6.

Most details about ride day will remain the same about this year’s cycling event to benefit student scholarships but a few things will change.

Riders can still select from one of three routes but this year the routes will be reversed to allow for a different perspective and a new challenge.

Route options of 62 miles [100K], 45 miles [72K] and 33 miles [53K] will take riders along some of Northeast Georgia’s most scenic roadways during peak leaf season including the Tallulah River and a portion of the Lake Burton shoreline.

As in the past, all rides begin and end on the Tallulah Falls School upper school campus with a post-ride meal included in the $35 registration fee.

Volunteers will greet riders at SAG [Support and Gear] Stops.

Due to the support of the presenting sponsor, Ron Cantrell Construction, 100 percent of all sponsorships and registration fees go directly to student scholarships.

This key fundraiser has generated more than $150,000 over the past four years, with more than 70% of TFS students receiving some portion of need-based financial aid.
