I am most excited to present the 5th Annual Teardrop Century Ride for the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Athens. The 5th Annual Teardrop is moving to beautiful and historic Madison, Georgia this year. On September 12th, hundreds of riders will head out to ride 100, 63, 35, or 20 miles and enjoy a fabulous day of cycling while raising awareness and funds to help Interfaith Hospitality (IHNA) provide emergency shelter and vital services for homeless families with children in Northeast Georgia.
The 5th Annual Teardrop is proudly presented by The Hub Bicycles and Jittery Joe's Coffee in Athens. (And stay tuned for information about sponsorship options).
This weekend offers two more excellent ride choices, courtesy of Nitty Gritty:
Saturday, May 30, 2015 @ 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Oconee Heights Baptist Church, 4180 Jefferson Rd., Athens
Enjoy the full Apple Valley route (about 42 miles) or one of several shorter options available. Ride leader will be doing the long route at an average of 14-15 mph, so this is a good opportunity for folks who like longer distances at a more relaxed pace. Faster riders are welcome to ride ahead. Store stop in Dry Pond at roughly the halfway point. Please park in the grassy area beside the church. Maps available on the Nitty Gritty website and I will bring a few to the start.
