Exploring Georgia’s FKT Routes

by | Apr 23, 2023 | Routes

Is Georgia on your mind? The peach state currently has 55 routes and variations to explore: 28 of those have no posted women’s times (50.9%).

In 2022, 7 of the 24 FKTs were set by women (29.2%).

If you want to set an FKT on a route that does not have a posted women’s FKT, you should search for known times on Strava and Google.
