CONGRATULATIONS to the 15 cyclists who joined us for the Pedaling For Kids ride across the state this year! The cyclists had another year of perfect weather, serious biking and great fun.

The peloton completed the first half of the trip and stayed in Dublin, Georgia at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites. Our special thanks to the folks at the Holiday Inn Express for the great hospitality and accomodations. The second day carried the group into Savannah and they celebrated their accomplishment at the Hyatt Regency Savannah. Thank you Kim Callaway at the Hyatt for making sure everything was perfect. It was a very challenging two-day ride and everyone had a great weekend. The route was safe and the food, drink, comraderie, and accomadations has everyone already looking forward to this year’s trek.
