It's great to be back in summer-hot Georgia, especially with so much great riding coming up this weekend and beyond.
Starting with this weekend, there are three excellent riding options:
- This Saturday features the Nitty Gritty "Oglethorpe Friend-Builder Loops". See below for more details!
- Sunday option #1 is the "2nd Annual Tina Waddell Take Back the Trail Ride," on the Silver Comet Trail. See below for more details!
- Sunday option #2 is the Lake Oconee Cycling Group's "3 Gap Ride". See below for more details!
- There is a full schedule of Nitty Gritty Rides every weekend through August 15th (including a Bostwick ride that I'll be leading on 8/15, and more rides are being added). Please check out the Nitty Gritty ride calendar and c'mon out for a great variety of fun, challenging group rides. Contact Rik Oswalt if you are interested in leading a ride, too.
- As a reminder, it's official: AthSav2016 has been moved to May 6-8, 2016. Registration begins in October.
- I have been working with the organizers of the October 24th Good Hope Poppy Festival, and we have decided to add some great bike riding to the event - the Good Hope Poppy Festival Bike Ride will offer 50- and 25-mile options, leaving out of historic Good Hope at 10 a.m. and following some of the Walton County Project Road Share routes. Details and signup information will be available in a few days - mark your calendars now.
- Thanks to everyone who came out for fun and fellowship (and beer and pizza) at the Teardrop Kickoff Party at the Hub. Signups are rolling in - don't miss out (and remember that the $40 early registration offer expires on 8/15). Online jersey and bib ordering has closed, but I have ordered a limited number of additional items. Contact me directly now to check on sizes and availability, and to place your order now.
