It was great to see so many bike friends out there this past week, including one of our best Nitty Gritty turnouts of the year for this past Saturday's Bostwick ride. With temps starting to turn just a bit more fall-like and lots of folks returning from summer travels, we look forward to an amazing fall season. C'mon out!
This weekend offers three excellent choices: the Nitty Gritty Cold Sassy/Commerce Loop, the Red Clay Ramble, and Sunday's Tri to Beat Cancer. (I'm no swimmer, so I'm looking forward to doing the duathlon - run 3, bike 14, run 2 - once again).
Note that I have added two more rides to the Coming Soon calendar, below: the the Kaolin Festival Century (October 3rd) and the Twin Rivers Challenge (October 31st).
Finally, planning is already beginning for the 5th Annual Firefly Trail Ticket to Ride on March 19th, 2016, and the 15th Annual Athens-Savannah Double Century, May 6-7, 2016 - registration for AthSav will begin in another month. Just to get you excited about next year, I've added both of these rides to the calendar as well.
