The Trans North Georgia Bike Race is a 355-mile mountain-bike epic with over 55,000 feet of vertical that cuts through northern Georgia, South Carolina, and over into Alabama. “If you don’t think you’re up for this … don’t start,” says one racer. The film Ride to Extraordinary shows how impressive it is for riders even to finish this monster—let alone win.
