Kymulga Grist Mill
Childersburg, Alabama
Click to go to the web site for the RESTORATION RIDE in Childersburg, Alabama

The Restoration Ride started in 2015 as a way to raise funds for a pre civil war historical landmark, the Kymulga Grist Mill and Park. This Grist Mill was built in 1864 and survived the civil war and harsh weather but rising flood waters from the Talladega Creek almost took out the main section of the mill. Funds raised from cyclist attending the Restoration Ride, have allowed the volunteers that manage the mill, to complete much needed repairs, as well as daily maintenance to insure this landmark is around for future generations to see. Pictures of the mill, covered bridge and park can be seen on the events Facebook page at

Restoration Ride has taken place each year since 2015, however, 2019 will be the Finale. Our biggest and best event yet!
The 2019 Restoration Ride will consist of 4 routes, a century (103 miles), a 75 mile, a 33 mile and a family friendly 8 mile out and back. Rest stops strategically placed with snacks, water, gatorade, etc. The 100 mile route will be a challenging one with around 5000' of elevation over the entire course! Complete SAG support, HAM radio operators on course, monitoring riders and rest stop needs.

Kymulga Grist Mill, 7346 Grist Mill Rd # 180, Alpine, AL 35014
