To all my Georgia riding buddies. If you are not aware, there is a bill that has been introduced that will require the purchase of a license for your bikes. It is HB689. Please take the time to contact your State Reps and let them know we do not want this passed.
There are other provisions such as no more that 4 riders in a pace line and if there are more riders, there must be 50 feet separating each group of 4. Here is a quote from the bill "Persons riding bicycles upon a roadway shall ride single file except on bicycle paths, bicycle lanes, parts of roadways set aside for the exclusive use of bicycles, or when a special event permit issued by a local governing authority permits riding more than single file. Persons riding bicycles upon a roadway shall ride no more than four riders per single file line, and at least four feet shall separate each bicycle. At least 50 feet shall be maintained between each line of four riders at all times."
