REGISTRATION & JERSEYS
Do you get the hint that our 2018 event is taking place on St Patricks weekend?! Good news is that the jerseys have been so popular, a 2nd order will be placed. Write email@example.com to place your order by February 18th.
Restoration Ride is a non-competitive cycling event, being held in order to raise money for the restoration and daily operation of the Kymulga Grist Mill and Park. This is one of the oldest historical landmarks in Talladega County and sits on the Talladega Creek in Alpine, Alabama, just outside of Childersburg. Built in 1864, the Mill was damaged by flood water a few years ago and while many improvements and repairs have been completed, there is still much more required in order to have the mill fully operational as was back in its day. Currently, visitors can enter the mill and see where mill was ground and packaged, view the equipment and hear mill volunteers provide a history of the mill and how it operates. Visit the store and purchase home made honey butter, hand made crafts as well as Mill tee shirts. After your ride and tour of the mill, check out the 5+ miles of walking trails, canoeing and camping areas!
On event day, 6-7:15 am CST, a home cooked breakfast consisting of hot and fresh scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, homestyle potatoes and biscuits are served to ensure you are fueled up before beginning your day of cycling! After completing your route of choice, return to the mill for a post ride lunch of smoked pulled pork, smoked chicken, green beans, deviled eggs, coleslaw and bread, as well as some great home made desserts. For our vegan friends, there will be a couple of vegan options as well.
All proceeds, after expenses, go directly to the mill. Please visit our Facebook page and make plans to join us for our 4th Annual Restoration Ride!
