Extend your GTR experience to six days with our pre-tour. We will ride for three days from our host hotel on the shores of beautiful Lake Oconee. Since we are staying in the same place for the entire pre-tour, you will be able to explore this part of Georgia while part of an intimate cycling group. We will have a short and long option each day for your riding choices. After the pre-tour, you are about a 45-mile drive from Covington and GTR 2019.
