The West Georgia 100

The West Georgia 100 has some great changes for 2011.

First, our start/finish will be held at the new football stadium on the UWG campus with easy access to showers and tons of convenient parking.

Second, the 25 mile course has been re-routed so it no long climbs up Bonner Goldmine hill but goes around it.

Third, the Re/MAX hot air balloon will be giving rides (weather permitting) to participants.

Fourth, Georgia Senator Bill Hamrick is our honorary starter AND will be riding with us. He was on the Senate Safety Committee and pushed to release, modify, and pass the improved HB101 and is a huge cycling fan. Here is your chance to "Cycle with the Senator" and give this guy a huge THANK YOU for supporting cycling!

Fifth - take advantage of our 12 and under Youth Rate.

Also, while we are past the mail-in deadline, online registration has been extended until Wednesday May 18th with the $5 savings still in effect until midnight Sunday May 15. T-shirts are no longer guaranteed but will be distributed if available. Proceeds benefit the Carrollton Greenbelt - a bicycle/pedestrian facility that will circle Carrollton.

Boy Scout Troop 138 is geared up and ready to go, the community is excited to have you in town, and we look forward to riding with you next week.

If you'd like to make a bicycle weekend out of it, please ride with the Roopville Ramble crowd on Saturday - proceeds benefit Camp Sunshine. Roopville is only 15 minutes outside of Carrollton.

Its going to be beautiful weekend to be on a bicycle!!

See you soon!!

AV200 May 14th and 15th

On two days this May, you can be among a group of cyclists and volunteers who are challenging themselves and changing the world. The AV200 200 begins on the beautiful Emory University campus in Atlanta and winds through scenic Georgia countryside to arrive at Camp Rock Eagle in the Oconee National Forest. Along the way you will have the opportunity to make new friends and see parts of Georgia in ways that you have never seen it before... from a bike! And at the same time you will be raising much needed money for Emory Vaccine Center, which is at the forefront of AIDS vaccine research.

Completing back-to-back centuries (200 miles) is a very rewarding endeavor. Building public awareness for HIV/AIDS is challenging. Raising money for an AIDS Vaccine is difficult. And making the commitment to accept these challenges is a serious one.

The decision, the commitment, the training, the sweat, the pain, the accomplishment of your impossible dream, the knowledge that YOU have made a significant contribution through your individual efforts that make a big difference in the world is a sense of great exhilaration that have made grown people weep with joy at the end of the ride. What you will have accomplished will be felt around the world!

The registration fee is $100 but will be discounted $25 if a team of five or more registers. The fee includes two t-shirts, accommodations Saturday night and all meals/drinks for the weekend, including a post ride dinner/ceremony on the campus of Emory University. The fundraising minimum is a low $500. For more information, visit us at, send an email to or call us a (404) 954-CYCL (2925).

Thanks and we hope to see you on May 14th and 15th!
