There are countless options for big organized rides in the S.E. but here are just a couple that are popular in the metro Atlanta area:
The 4th Teardrop Century & Metric is a really great ride in the Athens, GA area and notice the ALL the proceeds (not just ‘a portion’) goes to a very worthy cause. In other words, there’s no question what this ride is all about and where the money goes.

The 9th One Love Century ride is fast approaching to the August 30th start
date. This popular ride is on the southwest side of metro Atlanta, known to the cycling community as ‘Silk Sheets’. Better have your climbing legs for this ride, as your either going up or down.
THE ONE LOVE CENTURY is more than just another century ride, it is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of local youth through your participation. Proceeds from the event help support the BRAG Dream Team, East Atlanta Kids Club, and the DLV Youth Cycling League.

Atlanta Cycling’s Labor Day ride follows on the heels of the rides above. This Fairburn, GA ride has several distance options to please any cyclist and great rest stops to go along with that. Like the One Love Century, this Labor Day ride weaves through Silk Sheets in a slightly different approach but rolling terrain and climbs still awaits you.
