Cycling at Fort Gordon Range Road
Would you like to ride Fort Gordon’s “Range Road” Bicycling Routes, but aren’t sure how to get access to the Base or where to go?
Well, we've got you covered!
Range Road is an awesome place to ride, with lots of great hill climbing, and it’s very safe with very little vehicular traffic! If you love cycling and haven’t experienced Fort Gordon’s Range Road Routes, you should check it out!
However, before you can ride on Fort Gordon, you must obtain a base pass, plus a permit to ride the cycling routes.
Here’s the process:
- Obtain your Fort Gordon Annual Visitors Pass. This pass will allow you to access the base for a full year.
- Register on the iSportsman Web site and obtain your Permit to Ride Range Road. This permit costs $5 and you must complete a short, online safety briefing before you will be allowed to purchase the pass. This permit will allow you to ride the cycling routes, and you will log into this site and check in and check out each time you ride Range Road.
SPECIALIZED Brand Ambassador, Bob Ford, will host a Fort Gordon Spring Ride at 9:00 AM Saturday, March 28st to show you the routes! There is a 15 mile route and a 23 mile route, and we plan to ride both that day (the 23 mile route is on the 15 mile route, with an additional 8 mile extension). If you don’t get your pass and permit in time for this ride, we are also planning a 2nd ride on the first day of Summer, Saturday June 20th! If these rides become popular, we’ll look at add additional rides this year!
Here are links for these two rides – all the ride details will be posted on the Facebook Event pages.
