Ride Description:  First run as an ACP brevet in 1999, the route was designed by Scott and Melinda Dura.  If either of them abandoned on a century ride, he or she would have to ride the 200k brevet course the next day as "penance."  The 200k originally started and finished near the YMCA in downtown Gainesville.  It had a fast downhill start and a laborious uphill finish.  The first Audax Atlanta series was mountainous in preparation for Boston-Montreal-Boston.  At the time BMB was the only domestic 1200k.  This ride's 8,500 feet of climbing is a reflection of that training and was modeled after the Spartanburg SC series.  The course was later adjusted to start east of downtown Gainesville.  It was routed to include a beautiful road along the shore of lake Rabun and a generally downhill return along the Soque river.
