Saturday, June 22nd was the 3rd annual Atlanta Trek Customer Appreciation Day. The day featured a 60 mile "Trek from Trek to Trek" bike ride. The ride started at 8:00am from both the McDonough Trek shop and the Peachtree City Trek Shop. The plan was for the two groups to meet in the middle at Woolsey Baptist Church at the corner of Antioch Road and Hampton Road west of Woolsey, GA. There was also a 30 mile option that turned around at the church and a 15 mile option that stayed near the shop in McDonough.

The group stayed together, as much as possible, for the ride on GA-20 to the Atlanta Motor Speedway. From AMS it was all out for the lead group until we reached the church. At the church we had a brief respite before continuing into Peachtree City. The last mile or so was on the cart paths and through a parking lot. We'll probably have to change that next year.

I had to leave the shop for work soon after the ride was done. I bought six raffle tickets to support the Wounded Warrior Project on my way out. Alec called me later to tell me I had won a pair of sunglasses. What a great way to end the day!
