Hospitality Highway

Once a year, one of the busiest Highways in the Atlanta area – Georgia 400, is closed down to allow a bicylce ride to pass through.


Once a year, one of the busiest Highways in the Atlanta area – Georgia 400, is closed down to allow a bicycle ride to pass through.  Normally, bicyclist are not allowed on the highways so, it is very unusual to see no auto traffic and hundreds of cyclist riding down this road.  This one would have been a great image for the “Forbidden” daily prompt a few days ago.

The Georgia 400 Century ride started out this morning at about 7AM with riders crossing over the at Holcomb Bridge Road and entering the southbound on ramp to the highway with the sun rising behind them.

Some riders will be going the full 100 mile route which leads down GA 400 to Northridge Road (the next exit to the south) and then winds back up along the Chattahoochee River through Roswell and Alpharetta then west toward Mountain Park and eventually back to the starting point.  There are other routes that cover 9, 27, 45 and 62 miles for those who are not ready to take on that many hours on the road.

This was quite a sight to see and I’m sure the participants will have a great ride through the rolling hills that the route covers.  Hopefully, they won’t melt before the ride is over.  Looks like the temps will be well into the 90’s by the time they are finished!

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
