This event is a fundraiser event for COPD Foundation held on behalf of Coliseum Pulmonary Center, affiliated with Coliseum Medical Centers.  We are hoping to raise awareness of COPD and lung disease,the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States.

Event details and schedule

The bike ride registration/check-in will begin at 7:00 am on McCrackin Street near The Whistle Stop Cafe in Juliette, GA.  This is a 50 mile bicycle ride down Highway 11 in Monroe County and into the countryside of Jones County.  The turn-around with a rest station will be at the Government Center in Gray, and will return down the same route to end at the Whistle Stop Cafe.  There will be a "best hand" activity that will include a few stops along the route where riders will be able to pick up a playing card.  Once the ride is complete, cyclists will turn in their complete hand of cards.  The highest hand will win a massage from Holistic Touch Therapeutic Massage on Ingleside Avenue in Macon, GA. Parking is available in a few small lots and on the street sides in Juliette.  Please make sure that you bring the Coliseum Medical Centers waiver and an ID with you to check-in.  There will be snacks and bottled water available at the mid-ride stop at the Government Center and a small lunch provided after the ride.  If you have questions, please contact Candi Ussery @ 478-957-9151.
