One of the best things about living in Athens, especially for this erstwhile city boy, is being able to jump out on my bike midday for a quick 40-mile jaunt through farms and rolling fields. Even saw a big ol' fox cross the road today. Now, back to work...

Teardrop Century Ride - Saturday, September 12, 2015
Each year, IHNA helps more than 500 homeless families and individuals with the emergency support, services, and guidance needed to move from homelessness to lives of hope and productive, sustainable independence. Since its inception in 2004, more than 3,000 IHNA volunteers have donated 150,000 hours of service, and have provided more than 25,000 "bed nights" of shelter. Nationally, IHNA is part of the Family Promise organization that has served more than 600,000 homeless folks since 1986.
And all you have to do is sign up, ride, and enjoy! Online registration is now open. The 5th Annual Teardrop departs from Morgan County High School, 1231 College Drive, Madison, GA at 9 a.m. on September 5th. All four routes - 101, 63, 35, and 21 - are absolutely lovely, traveling along Antebellum Trail routes though such historic towns as Rutledge, Social Circle, Jersey, Good Hope, Watkinsville, Bostwick, and Fairplay. Routes are fully sagged and supported with great sag stops approximately every 15 miles. The short route - 21 miles - is a flat and easy out and back to the quaint town of Rutledge, making it an ideal choice for new and casual riders. (Come with us to preview the New Teardrop Metric route this Sunday - see below).
The 5th Annual Teardrop is proudly presented by The Hub Bicycles , Jittery Joe's Coffee and Virginia McKenna, Licensed Professional Counselor. We have a limited number of spaces on our fabulous Castelli event jersey (to be revealed soon!) for Major Sponsors ($500) and Sponsors ($250). I'll be in touch with folks this week, or contact me by email. You'll want to be part of this!
