They meet at the Atlanta Trek bike shop in McDonough each Saturday and Sunday for a 13 or 20 mile group ride. The pace is moderate. Their rides are listed on the Atlanta Trek website under "Local Ride Info".
The group is having a meeting on Saturday, February 16th at 6pm at the Trek shop.
We encourage all our lady riders to join WOW and have some cycling fun this year. There are no dues or fees. It's just girls (and sometimes a guy or two) helping each other learn to ride and teaching others to be better riders.

Sounds like fun!

The 2013 SCC Sponsors
Introducing the 2013 line-up of club sponsors. Fallas Family Vision is the club's main sponsor. Special thanks to Dr. Fallas and his wife Elizabeth for their continued support of the club.
We'd also like to recognize continuing sponsors Alpha Tire and Auto, Epic Bikes, Gezzo's Surf and Grille, and Atlanta Trek. We've also got three new sponsors this year. Broadwing Aviation, Farmer Properties, and Grace Management are all new supporters.
"I got me some new spectacles at Fallas
Family Vision. Now I can see the grimace
on Peto's face when I pass him on the bike."
Please support these sponsors because without them Southern Crescent Cycling really would be far less fun!
