    Visiting Alpharetta late Jan / early Feb

    Leaving the white north - I'm going to be in Alpharetta on biz later this month or next. I'm working to schedule one free day to ride and had some Qs:

    1. Will there be trails open? (weather permitting?)
    2. Can I rent a bike nearby? (closest I could find online was in Roswell)
    3. If yes and yes to above - what's the best way/place to spend a day there?*

    * I like both flow and tech with small/med jumps/drops.

    1. Yes.
    2. Yes. https://www.freshbikeservice.com/ is right beside Big Creek and rents bikes.
    3. Big Creek has xc, freeride and a pump track. You can check trail statuses by visiting Roswell-Alpharetta Mountain Bike Organization

    If I was taking a day to ride, I would go somewhere besides Big Creek. I mostly ride there after work as it's just up 400 from where my office is but it's a bit low on my ranking of trail systems in the area. There isn't a lot of mileage there so I end up doing multiple laps just to get 12-15 miles in. There are some freeride downhills if that is your thing. You might want to consider Chicopee Woods, 21 miles of trails. Or Blanket's Creek, which may be the most popular trail system in the area and if it isn't enough mileage, Rope Mill is just down the road. Or really get away from it all and head on up 400 to the North Georgia Mountains and ride Bull/Jake Mountain. From MTB Project:

    Located at the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, the Bull Mountain and Jake Mountain trail network includes more than 50 miles of great riding, including an IMBA Epic route that covers a good chunk of the trails. You'll get little bit of everything - red clay singletrack, loose rocks, take-off-your-shoes stream crossings, and some steep, sustained climbs.

    Not sure where you can rent from, maybe still fresh bikes or if doing Blanket's Creek, https://www.sixespit.com/#home
