    Augusta Ga. ?

    I'll be in Augusta mid October and would love to ride at FATS. Is there a bike store close by that will rent a bike? I've tried several places, but no luck.

    Thanks in advance.

    Chain Reaction in Martinez, GA has just started a rental bike service...give them a call. They're about 20 minutes from FATS.

    They're good folks, and good supporters of the local mtn bike scene.

    FATS closes every year for 2 weeks for deer season. Looks like it is Oct 11-25 this year.

    FATS is open on Sundays during this hunting season closure as there is no hunting on Sundays on public lands in SC.

    Thanks for both replys.

    I'll be in Augusta during deer hunting season. I guess I'll be riding FATS on 10/17. Assuming I can rent a bike.

    We have a lot of other trails, and fats is the only one that closes for hunting. Be sure to wear hunter orange.

    FATS is closed the next two weeks, except for Sunday the 17th.

    Chain reaction in Martinez, GA has some sort of rental program.
