6:00am - 6:00pm
Restoration Ride is a non-competitive cycling event, being held in order to raise money for the restoration and daily operation of the Kymulga Grist Mill and Park. This is one of the oldest historical landmarks in Talladega County and sits on the Talladega Creek in Alpine, Alabama, just outside of Childersburg. Built in 1864, the Mill was damaged by flood water a few years ago and while many improvements and repairs have been completed, there is still much more required in order to have the mill fully operational as was back in its day. Currently, visitors can enter the mill and see where mill was ground and packaged, view the equipment and hear mill volunteers provide a history of the mill and how it operates. Visit the store and purchase home made honey butter, hand made crafts as well as Mill tee shirts. After your ride and tour of the mill, check out the 5+ miles of walking trails, canoeing and camping areas! On event day, starting at 6:00am CST, a home cooked breakfast consisting of hot and fresh scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, homestyle potatos and biscuits are served to ensure you are fueled up before beginning your day of cycling! After completing your route of choice, return to the mill for a post ride lunch of smoked pulled pork, smoked chicken, green beans, deviled eggs, cole slaw and bread, as well as some great home made desserts. For our vegan friends, there will be a cple of vegan options as well. All proceeds, after expenses, go directly to the mill.
