Sandy Springs Cycling Challenge

The local criterium circuit event continues in Sandy Springs Sunday, May 5th. The Sandy Springs course has more hills to it which can offer different perspectives. Races start at 10am and run through 7pm (end of Taste of Sandy Springs).

Here's a link to the 2012 map. BTW, the map is a very large pdf file, 38mb so it may take some time to download.  The web site hasn't listed a 2013 map so I'm guessing no changes will be taking place. Parking areas are listed on the map. I don't see the need to have a designated location to meet. Feel free to come and join the fun any time during the day.

I would suggest parking in the Whole Foods Market parking lot at 5930 Roswell Rd.  This should allow for easy in and easy out through out the day.

    I had a great time shooting today. The weather started out wet but eventually clear skies prevailed. Tried lots different shooting locations and different techniques.

    The forecast is showing the rain has gone away until later this afternoon.

    Tony, I just checked their web site and no mention of a cancellation. If it's like last week in Roswell, they race rain or shine.

    Is this event still a go?

    The weather still looks iffy. Lots of rain on Saturday with showers and possible t-storms on Sunday. Stay tuned.

    The weather forecast is constantly changing. Don't let the possibility of rain scare you off. I learned from the Roswell bike race that you can get some interesting shots and perspectives with the rain element.

    Sunday's forecast is calling for partly cloudy skies. That'll be quite a bit better than what we experienced yesterday. I have to admit, the rain added an additional element to those shots and I enjoyed looking for ways to portray what kind of day it was.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
