Tour de Georgia

Now for the second year in a row, we've had the pleasure of watching an amazing bike race pass right by our house! On Wednesday, April 18th, the third stage of Tour de Georgia had the bicylists travel from Rome, GA to Chattanooga, TN (118 miles), and what a thrill it was to watch the pelaton buzz right past us! We could tell that the bicycles were nearing us when we saw the helicopter that was following them hovering over us...and before we knew it, the pelaton had already gone by was a whirlwind!

Then the next day, stage four of Tour de Georgia traveled from Chickamauga, GA to Lookout Mountain (18.9 miles) as one of their time trials! And once again, it was amazing! Not only is it fun to get into the spirit of cheering on the bicyclists as they individually pass the finish line (which was directly in front of us), it's also fun to see all of your friends and neighbors out and about!
