Join us for our 5th Annual Paulding Rides for Wishes bike ride (not a race) benefitting
Make-A-Wish® Georgia. This event is for riders of all ages and levels. Riders will gather in Veteran’s Park at Watson Government Complex then proceed, with help from local law enforcement, to the Tara Drummond Trail Head on the Silver Comet Trail. The ride will go west up to 11 miles to the county line, making a round trip approximately 22 miles; however, you choose the distance you would like to ride! You are welcome to turn around at any point and return to Veteran’s Park. Any social distancing measures necessary will be taken.
The Silver Comet Trail is a wide paved path which runs along an old rail bed with only slight inclines. You will experience stunning views along this scenic trail with its bridges, historic tunnels, cut rock walls, beautiful wooded areas, and even a little wildlife. The Silver Comet Trail is a gem worth exploring, so explore it with us!
All proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish® Georgia to grant life-changing wishes for critically ill children.
