Fast Times

image

This past weekend the Georgia Cyclocross Series was in Douglasville at Boundary Waters Park. It’s the first of 2 visits to Boundary Waters and the races were run on the traditional course. It was a fast race.
SoPo, our friends at ATLX, and other SoPo-nistas were out to have fun, encourage, heckle, help, race, and have fun. Yep, we all had twice as much fun.
Part of the fun was seeing bacon hand-ups. If a racer can smile while grabbing bacon midrace, it’s got to be super fun.
Hope everyone who’s reading this will get a chance to come out and see a cyclocross race.
Thanks to GA CX, the race promoters, racers, fans, and volunteers for such a great event.

Thank You to The Bicycle Wheel

A big thank you goes out to The Bicycle Wheel in Johns Ferry. They recently donated 33 bikes, a unicycle, and other bike stuffs. 33 Bikes!

This awesome donation will go a long way to helping out folks. Bikes are in the shop. Some bikes are headed to Beltline Bikes in Adair Park. Lots of bike love being spread around Atlanta.

We can’t say thanks enough. And remember, donations to SoPo are tax deductible, we are a 501c3 non-profit.

Met Will on the Beltline, he needed a wrench to tighten up the bolts on his rear wheel. We got to talking and he told me about his custom bike with several shops contributing.

Another Atlanta Streets Alive has come and gone. It’s still amazing to see all the people on the street enjoying themselves with all that ASA, local businesses, and participants offer. This is a great event for Atlanta.

Conyers Cyclocross Doubleheader

image

Team SoPo had a full weekend of racing to start the Georgia Cyclcross Series. Both days were at Elks Aidmore in Conyers. 2 days and 2 different courses needing different skills. It was a great weekend of racing and pictures cannot capture the fun and supportive environment that Georgia Cross brings.

If you can come and and watch, it is well worth it.

Thanks to the Georgia Cyclocross Series and all the volunteers who made the Conyers races happen.

This weekend the series heads to Douglasville at Boundary Waters Park.
