News Notes

The Cycology Bike Shop opens August 31st just a few blocks off the Silver Comet in Hiram. Co-owner Ira Hochberg looks forward to meeting Silver Comet riders and demonstrating extraordinary customer care. Check it out just north of the Hiram Trailhead (mile 14.6) on US 278.

Frankie’s restaurant in downtown Rockmart has a new owner. Joshua and Jennifer Minulli are the proud new owners of the popular lunch venue for Silver Comet riders. “We have a few new menu items that we are introducing, but everything else will remain the same, including the name,” Jennifer said. As for Frankie, she plans to travel and spend some time with her family out west. We will miss our buddy and wish her the best.

Silver Comet Detours in Powder Springs at mile 11 and near Rambo Trailhead in mile 22 are both still active at press time. The bridge work in each location has been delayed because of rain. Please slow down on these narrow stretches of trail. They make the connection but they are both temporary and substandard compared to the Silver Comet. Be careful out there!

Grand openings will occur in Carrollton at Hobbs Farm on August 24 and sometime in September at Panola Mountain State Park to open the new trails in the park. Watch the PATH website and like us on Facebook for details.
