Now accepting 2014 Letters of Intent

Send your Letter of Intent submissions to notahammer@yahoo.com and your t-shirt size - if you want a shirt!

I do formally intend to be present at the 2014 Fall Tour. To support the idea that has continued to grow these 14 years. Ecstatic to spend 4 days of dreamlike bliss in the presence of a Grand Tour. Legends will be made, dreams broken, and post tour depression likely will set in.

Everything changes, everything is connected, Pay attention !

I, Natty Dunn, intend to take a full pull of 2014's rowdy and raw Fall Tour. The only Grand Tour that matters brah!

Nasty Nat Dunn

I hereby declare that I intend to ride all 4 days of the Fall Tour 2014!

Seth 'Stiffy' Younger

After a 4 year hiatus from thus said "Tour" (much of it spent off the bike), I, Reverend Horton Heat, hereby commit to the whole enchilada in true rockabilly style.

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my GC contention.


Committee says time to rally in Persimmon Valley so put me down for full pull. Viva!

Ted Shred

Esteemed Tour Committee,
I hereby proclaim my intent to partake of the most secretive, extreme, and bacchanalian event in mountain biking - the epic Fall Tour, v.14. Though I'll only be physically present for 3 of the 4 gruelling stages, I will be there in spirit for the fourth (Saturday's stage) cheering you on.
See you soon at the Center of the Universe.


Gotta redeem myself on big ridge after 2012's otb shoulder separation fiasco. Then maybe a 2nd day, then maybe go home crying and drunk! Who knows! It's daTour!


In defiance of local health codes, I sacrificed my finest goats and finally the gods aligned the stars in my favor. The mercy of the stars' gravitational pull has lifted me from the doldrums of my recent submission to working a full time job. That's right, it's GC for me and shooting for the bull goose loony.


At the invite of my good buddy, JP, I do intend to travel from my home in Northern California for a full Tour of the Georgia mountains.


My 2 month-old addition to the Future FallTour Riders limits my intentions to Saturday and Sunday for this year.


Ah yes, The Fall Tour.
I'll be there all four days, and maybe all four nights.

Jeff Shirey

Can't wait to baby snake in the dirty south and make Daddy Carp proud.

Lizzy Clawprong

Despite any rumors floating around about O-town down, I made it through the wolf/bear attack and back upright on the bike. Tighten up ponies, I’ll be there at the prologue and all four days of the last Grand Tour of the year, THEFALL TOUR, Geah.


I don't know the days. I don't know what my condition will be. I don't know how a fly lands on the ceiling.

I do know 2 things though. I know I'll be there. I know it'll rock.

Heading down to the dirty south for a FULL SLUM participation of the great southern Grand Tour. Can't wait to relax for four sweet days bliss. Slumcations are the only vacations.

I am down with the madness and let those with DFL intentions come see me.



Friday. Saturday. Sunday.

Beer is good.
Bikes are neat.

I intend to have no fun participating in either of these.


Riding all 4 days of the GRAND Fall Tour!


Is my intent to participate in days 1, 2 and 3 of this year's Fall Tour.

So happy to make an appearance after a 4 year absence and hope I have the stamina to make it until Sunday evening.

I may not bring the pain, but I will be bringing hot sauce, hot peppers, garlic and sweet potatoes from the garden for all to feast upon.

Farmer "G"

To the esteemed Fall Tour Committee,

I give my son, Hayden Lanzilotta (now 17 and a senior in high school), permission to kick the living crap out of all tour participants. From the top of glassy to the top of Rabun for all four days.

Please note, I will be filling in for him on Saturday as he has to take the SAT and ACT exams.

Yes, I am requesting that we share a single entry as I have an important work deadline (wish the tour was in November like it use to be) and Hayden wants to ride.

Please approve my request, least we can't participate at all... :- (


Eric and I both intend on living the dream at all four days of the tour! Not sure Eric's intentions, but mine are to keep moving forward and rubber side down!

Can't wait to see you guys!

Maria (and Eric)

Im in for 2, possibly 3 days.

Matt B

I've heard that there is a good time happening this weekend in the Dirty. Boss said I could have off to ride. So I'll be bringing some supplies for the doping tent. And I will have some of Oliver's stuff from Tim. I have money for event and if I need to contact someone else to get a spot I'm happy to do that.


Hi, my name is Brian! I am from Kentucky and live in southern Indiana.

Just found out about this event from Bruce Dickman, he said I need to come down and show you Georgia folks how to ride a mountain bike.
