Before the riders set out at Metro Atlanta Cycling Club’s One Love Century ride. Hope everyone enjoyed their ride. And thanks to MACC for all their hard work to put on the event.
This weekend is the Metro Atlanta Cycling Club’s 9th Annual MACC “One Love Century”. It’s one of the best and well supported rides. It’s not too late to sign up and ride. We wish MACC, our long time supporters, and all riders the best ride this weekend.
ONE LOVE!! Metro Atlanta’s best charity bike ride is only a few summer months away, and we can’t wait for you to join us. Great roads. Better food. Not much traffic.

THE ONE LOVE CENTURY is more than just another century ride, it is ‘the best value’ you can find for a charity ride in Georgia, also it is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of local youth through your participation. Proceeds from the event help support the BRAG Dream Team, East Atlanta Kids Club, and the DLV Youth Cycling League.
We have also contributed to local cycling scene through WeCycle Atlanta, an organization helping to get the community more active through volunteerism and cycling.
SoPo continues our partnership with the International Rescue Committee. The IRC received some bikes from SoPo. It was interesting to hear how these bikes will be used. The bikes will go to adults who can use them for work transportation. Buses have limited routes and set times, most IRC clients do not have a car; a bike opens up their transportation abilities for work. The stories were amazing to hear. We know these bikes will provide some good for the community.
Rock Camp, bikes, and SoPo are just awesome! Our own Jacqui visited the Girls Rock Camp and taught a lesson on bike maintenance. Their thank you card was super cool!
Sunday had so much biking events going on from the Grant Park Criterium to the Atlanta Cycling Fest leading a Living Walls bike tour or just riding around the Beltline and enjoying some King of Pops. SoPo set up across from the King of Pops HQ to help out bikers with some easy tune-ups. Sunday was also the debut of our mobile bike fix it trailer. We enjoyed our day. Thanks to all who came out.
