More than 1,500 cyclists came out for the inaugural Hospitality Highway Century on July 12, which raised more than $55,000 to benefit the Georgia Transplant Foundation (GTF). Riders came together from all over Georgia, neighboring states, and even as far as Texas for the chance to say “I shut down 400!”
Bicyclists pedaled their way from the start at the former Home Depot in Roswell, down to Ga. 400 where they rode southbound from exit 7 to 6, and continued through the cities of Sandy Springs, Milton, Johns Creek, Alpharetta, as well as other scenic areas of North Fulton County and Cherokee Counties. Routes included the 9-mile ”I Did It” ride or the 31-mile, 61-mile, or 100-mile options.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support GTF and for helping make this inaugural event such a huge success! Photos from the event will be posted in the next couple of weeks, so visit www.gatransplant.org to keep up with the latest news.
