    The Rides

    The Six Gap Century's ultra challenging route takes you up and down six of the steepest climbs in the North Georgia Mountains. Test your stamina with more than 11,200 feet of vertical climbing over the 104 mile course. The Three Gap Fifty’s alternative route offers half the gaps and half the distance, but is nevertheless a demanding and challenging course at 58 miles. Read More

COVID-19 FAQs, Policies & Procedures

The Six Gap staff have been working with USA Cycling and local health officials and will run the event in accordance with their guidance to ensure rider health and safety.

There have been many modifications made for late registration, packet pickup, parking, ride start protocol, rest stops, medical support and other areas, which pertain to staff and volunteers as well as participants.

Below is a recap of some of Six Gap Century actions to adapt to the new environment. For full information on all new procedures and protocols, please visit the Six Gap FAQs.

Masks - Face coverings are required for everyone while inside at the High School campus and outside when they are within six feet of someone not in their household, including during the staging process at the start. Once riders begin to distance themselves, masks can be taken off. View Full Mask Policy Here.

Drive-thru check-in and registration will be offered on Saturday, Sept. 26 at Lumpkin County High School between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Masks are not required for riders who complete Saturday drive-thru check-in and registration. Masks are required for the walk-up check-in and registration on Sunday Sept. 27. All registered riders must complete the check-in process. Registered riders must pick up their own ride packet. Riders must present a photo ID at time of packet pick-up.

Two start options - A MASK start will have riders staged in three waves starting at 7:30 am for the Six Gap Century, and 8:30 am for the Three Gap Fifty and Valley Ride. Riders will divide themselves in groups based on their predicted average speed for any typical long ride. For the individual no-mask start, riders may begin at any time during their route's start window after the initial three MASK start groups have left. This allows riders to start without a mask on.

Rest Stops - All rest stops (there are nine total for Six Gap Century) will have one-way in/one-way out for riders when accessing the food/beverage stations. Single-serving beverages, including bottled water and snacks, will be provided by volunteers. Masks are required at rest stops when riders are not able to maintain social distance from people outside of their household. Disposable masks will be available at each rest stop. Hand sanitizer will be available at each rest stop.

Food Service at High School - Pre-ride breakfast and post-ride spaghetti dinner will be served in new to-go containers. Pre-ride breakfasts will be sold from 6 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., or while supplies last. We recommended pre-purchasing breakfast with your registration. The post-ride spaghetti dinner will be served from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be limited, socially-distanced seating at the tables in the cafeteria. Tables will be cleaned after each use.

Suspended access to locker rooms - Inside the high school, there will be no access to the locker rooms or showers before or after the ride. There will be restrooms available at Lumpkin County High School. Restrooms will be cleaned and sanitized frequently.

Six Gap Bike Expo Canceled - The Six Gap merchandise tent will be set up on Sunday, September 27 at Lumpkin County High School between 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., selling vintage jerseys and other Six Gap merchandise. In addition, Six Gap 2020 jerseys, bibs, and shorts are available for purchase online at Pactimo until Oct. 11. Enter the Team Password "SIXGAP" to enter the Six Gap store at https://teamstore.pactimo.com/stores/select.

SAG Vehicles - The holding capacity of SAG vehicles to maintain social distancing will be reduced this year. Riders are required to wear masks when entering a SAG vehicle. SAG vehicle seats will be covered with disposable plastic covers and replaced after each cyclist.

Registration - There continues to be one standard fee, $86, for all three ride options at the Six Gap Century & Three Gap Fifty. All registrations can be done from a mobile device, so if you want to register on Sept. 26 or 27, please do so from your car and then you can roll through the drive-thru at Lumpkin County High School to check in. On-site registration on Sept. 26-27 will be $86 plus $10 walk-up. The rides will take place rain or shine.
