For those wanting a two day adventure we’ve reserved a block of rooms at The Oaks at Ochlockonee Bay. The property was purchased two years ago and renovated very nicely. There is a nice pool and hot tub area to enjoy after the ride. To reserve a room, call Lou at the Oaks. Tell her you are with CCC or Capital City Cyclists. If no answer, leave a message she will get back to you. The phone number for the Oaks is 850 713-0175. Please reserve your room as soon as possible, she can only hold the rooms for a couple weeks and there are a limited number of rooms available.

This will be a semi supported ride. Meaning the club will provide a few snacks at the starting points and drinks and snacks when you arrive at The Oaks Saturday as well as a continental style (yogurt, bagels, coffee and fruit) breakfast on Sunday. Dinner and lunches will be on your own. There are several restaurants along the way as well as within biking or walking distance of the Oaks.
