The weather is looking PERFECT for this Saturday’s BBC at the Budweiser Brewery in Cartersville / White Georgia! Hopefully this will lead to record turn-out. Last year over 1,400 cyclists were in attendance. And remember you can sign up on-site the morning of the event at 7am – so it’s not too late!
Two things of note that seem to come up each year:
1) The ride is well-marked with yellow “BBC” arrows the full length. With distance options of 15, 31, 48, 67 and 100. i.e. look for yellow “BBC-15” or “BBC-ALL” with arrows (see picture below). There are typically three (3) arrows before every turn and one afterwards – very hard to miss unless you are daydreaming along.
Each year a few riders get these confused with the WHITE “CC” arrow markings for the Cartersville Century – please ignore these!
2) You MUST bring a picture ID to the after ride celebration to sample the Anheuser Busch products. Arm bands will be supplied and required – check to make sure where to have your ID checked and armband provided before standing in line for the beer sampling (there are typically two different lines – one for the armband and another for the beer cart) ;)
All routes except the full century will be passing by the killer new Sosebee Cycling Park. Make this your last rest stop before the end and take in the beautiful surroundings.
