East Macon Recreation Complex: Mostly fast singletrack with some fast downhills and good climbes. These trails have just been finished and need to be ridden!! The trails are marked very well with ribbons and arrows. Park to the left by the swings and enter there, easy to follow.
Georgia Children's Home: From downtown Macon, take U.S.Highway 41 North. This road quickly becomes Vineville Avenue. Follow Vineville Avenue until Tucker Road at Wesleyan College. Take a left onto Tucker Road. Follow Tucker Road for approximately 2 miles until you see the road take a major turn right. At this point, turn left onto Ayers Road, and follow this road for approximately 3 tenths of a mile until you see Mumford Road on the right. Turn right onto Mumford Road,and follow this road until the Georgia Children's Home (an orphanage)is seen on the right. Park vehicles just before the home near roadside next to an abandoned old home which is also above a very visible pond.
Mabel White: Fast pace technical singletrack. Beautiful creekside riding, and overall pretty landscape. A few small hills to climb and descend. P.O.W.E.R. created this trail by request of administration of church. Ride it and enjoy, and be respectful to the church upon whose land we ride.
North Macon Recreation Complex: The trail will definitely ride very fast and be quite a technical trail. The trail rides amongst hills and creeksides, and makes for an excellent ride. This trail is similar to the old FoodMax trail Maconites use to ride so often. The trail is squeezed in between North Macon Park and John Drew Tennis Center. Several bridges have been built, but true mountain bikers will not use all of them. This trail was built in an area few believed was accesible. Ride this trail for some fast and furious exercise. There are several loops within the overall trail, and we hope signs will soon be provided by the Macon Rec. Dept.
This is a summary of the new trails in Macon, Georgia created recently by a non-profit known as P.O.W.E.R. This is a summation for those people looking for one place for trails in middle Georgia.
East Macon Recreation Complex: Take I-16 Rast out of Macon to Ocmulgee East Blvd. exit. Take a left and go past GEICO, on right past Herbert Smart Rd.
Georgia Childrens Home: From downtown Macon, take U.S.Highway 41 North. This road quickly becomes Vineville Avenue. Follow Vineville Avenue until Tucker Road at Wesleyan College. Take a left onto Tucker Road. Follow Tucker Road for approximately 2 miles until you see the road take a major turn right. At this point, turn left onto Ayers Road, and follow this road for approximately 3 tenths of a mile until you see Mumford Road on the right. Turn right onto Mumford Road,and follow this road until the Georgia Children's Home (an orphanage)is seen on the right. Park vehicles just before the home near roadside next to an abandoned old home which is also above a very visible pond.
Mabel White: Highly convenient for most people in Middle Georgia due to the proximity to the interstate. Take I-75 North from Macon to the Bass Road interchange. Take a left at end of ramp. Follow Bass Road in a western direction. Church is located on the left only one-half a mile from the interstate. Scrolling marquee sign at driveway. Go down driveway toward church, and look to park immediately on the right. Trailhead begins there. Follow signs.
North Macon Recreation Complex: From Tom Hill exit of I-75 in Macon, head toward downtown Macon on Riverside Drive for approximately one mile to the corner of Wimbish Road and Riverside Drive. Take a right onto Wimbish Road, and follow this road for approximately three-tenths (.3) miles, and turn right at the signs indicating North Macon Park. Take this entry road to the park until you enter the main parking lot. Look to the right down a hill, and the trail begins immediately downhill through a small pine thicket into the woods.
5.1 miles; 4.4 miles; 2.2 miles; 2.2 miles. Total P.O.W.E.R. miles = 13.9 miles
Summary: I couldn't have said it better myself. It's posts like these that are ruining this site. REVIEW a TRAIL, don't try to make a name for yourself! Hundreds of people around here do trail work, but you don't see any of them bragging about it every way possible on here. If you wanted some place to boost your ego, create your own site with a posting page and stop destroying this one. I think if you did that however, you'd find that your words would be the only ones posted!

Summary: Was this really necessary? Were your heads not quite big enough that you had to pull a tasteless manuever like this to draw attention to yourselves? I mean come on really, you're trying to be a pillar for the cycling community and all you do is shout "hey look at us, we're gods to the biking world!" Don't you get tired of hearing yourself talk? Maybe you need to rethink the goals and methodology of your organization, or maybe that's the real root of the problem - there is no organization to your organization and your goals are purely self benefiting. At least that's the image you are portraying. That's no way to run a club that is supposed to be helping for the sake of helping. There is an attribute that you lack, and that is humility. Instead of plastering these petty "good deeds" of yours up in everyone's face in efforts to attract attention to yourselves, why don't you concentrate on doing good in the interest of good - let it lie and allow others make remarks on your behalf for you. Build trails because you love to ride, maintain trails because you love to ride, host events because you love seeing others ride and you want to introduce new faces to the wonderful world of cycling. Do these things and know that you've helped and others have enjoyed rather than doing these things so that you have something else to brag about. Reading these "hey look at us, look at what we've done" posts is getting old. Don't you think it's time to grow up? If you want to be something to look up to quit acting like such children. Don't you get it? No one can take you seriously with actions like these floating all around the community. Do something respectable for a change.
