This Saturday, May 7, will be the first Tour d'Oconee bike ride, otherwise known as "Tame the Lion" due to the shape of the map outline.
Sponsored by the Oconee County Cycling Organization, the ride will depart from Rocket Field (200 2nd St.) in downtown Watkinsville, GA at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday. There will also be shorter options of 15, 25 and 35 miles and great SAG stops, so everyone can participate. The whole town is excited about the ride and there will be live entertainment at Watkinsville's First Friday celebration on Friday evening starting at 6:00 p.m.
Here's the catch - you need to register by midnight on May 5 (registration is $45). For more information and registration go to http://www.active.com/cycling/watkinsville-ga/the-tour-doconee-2011
Come and see what beautiful scenery we have in Oconee County and what a great place it is for cyclists.
