The Best Dam Ride allows riders of all ages and experience levels to enjoy a fun bicycle ride that can be challenging or easy-going depending on your taste. Starting from J. Strom Thurmond Dam, the Best Dam Ride offers both road and mountain bike routes that wind along Clarks Hill Lake near Augusta, Georgia. For 12 years, cycling enthusiasts from throughout the southeast have come together to enjoy a beautiful, scenic spring ride and support local charitable organizations.

This year, the Best Dam Ride will support the Augusta Urban Ministries bicycle and furniture assistance programs. This wonderful program provides refurbished bicycles to those who need to use a bike as their primary mode of transportation.

We hope you will join us for the 13th annual Best Dam Ride on April 17, 2016!

Registration starts at 7:00am and the ride begins at 8:30am. Parking and the registration booth are located below the dam on the South Carolina side.
