Yes, it was absolutely amazing. The organizers did a great job of moving from last years "wasted rock ranger" fest to a more active concert type venue this year. It kept participants actively moving and engaged making for a much better (and less dangerous) event. The route was good, the people were good, it was a great time that I look forward to repeating again next year. So far I have made them all...but sadly only have two shirts to show for it, lol.

Nice. Looks like it was a blast.

I picked up my t-shirt and wristband yesterday, but I made a whole bunch of excuses to myself not to go last night (didn't want to go solo, didn't want to pay for parking as I live OTP, etc.) I'll try to make it next year.

In regards to parking....we live OTP as well. I find that parking at the MARTA station (free parking, $5 two way ride cost) is the way to go.

I've taken my bike on Marta before when I did the Georgia ride to the capitol. Depending on how crowded the train gets, it can be a real pain.

It sure can! During peak times it can be really difficult to find a spot on the train. Try heading to the front or back.

Couldn't make it but know some folks who did. They had a great time. I'm planning on going to the next one.

Just as a follow up, did either of you make it this year?

Please tell me your impressions, if so.
