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!!
