Our 13th Annual Athens-Savannah Double Century departs 8 a.m. on Friday, May 2nd from the Homewood Hills Shopping Center in Athens. Join us for 210 beautiful, gently rolling miles through old Georgia! Our rolling sag caravan will escort the group, no matter how spread out we get, throughout both days of riding, and will provide lunch for you at the halfway point each day. We ride 110 miles on Day 1, through Maxeys, Union Point, Crawfordville, Warrenton, and Louisville. We stay overnight in the Louisville area, and then head out for another 100 miles on Day 2, ending at the intersection of Hwys. 17 and 80 in Bloomingdale, just outside of Savannah.
Our sag vehicles will transport you to dinner on Friday evening and to your hotel in Savannah on Saturday.
Your fee includes nonstop sag support and on-the-road lunch on Friday and Saturday.
Please note that you are responsible for your own rooming arrangements in the Louisville area and Savannah, but we will be glad to help you. Make sure you reserve your rooms early, as space is limited!
We have pre-booked rooms at the Louisville Motor Lodge for Friday evening, May 2nd – call to reserve your room(s): 478-625-7168 (you may have to let the phone ring quite a few times!)
