What a great Athens Twilight Weekend this has turned out to be - a festival of cycling, friends, music, and food! Seeing everyone yesterday morning at the Gambler and then downtown last night for the Criterium races was about as good as it gets! Congratulations to Cycle Sport Concepts, the ACCPD, and all of the event organizers and sponsors for putting our little town on display for the entire cycling world to see. (Click here for the list of official event sponsors).
And now, with barely a moment to collect ourselves, we begin the final countdown to the 14th Annual Athens-Savannah Double Century - AthSav2015 - departing at 8 a.m. this Friday for two amazing days of riding through old Georgia. AthSav riders, make sure you've checked the AthSav Details and Checklist page on the Bike List web site. We will be bringing some tags and marking pens to help you label your bikes on Friday morning. With so many folks spread out in so many places, this will help us make sure we've got you covered.
