The Bicycle Ride Across Georgia (or BRAG) made its way to Cave Spring on Monday. Cyclists were treated to a Sip and Stroll during the daytime and a concert in front of City Hall featuring the Unusual Suspects during evening hours.

Sandra Lindsey, former Director of the Cave Spring Downtown Development Authority, worked for three years to bring the major cycling event to the city. She was thrilled to welcome around 1,200 visitors and that the weather held out for their visit.

City Councilwoman Joyce Mink attests that she was excited to have a chance to meet cyclists from all over the country.

Franklin Johnson, BRAG Executive Director, indicates that Cave Spring was chosen as an overnight stop for this year’s event due to its tourist attractions, such as the cave and fresh spring water.

Johnson states that BRAG drew cyclists from 32 states; he is happy to show them the beauty of Georgia.

Marian Rosenberg of Atlanta enthuses that Cave Spring has been her favorite stop on this year’s BRAG so far.

BRAG got underway this past Saturday atop Lookout Mountain and is set to conclude this coming Saturday in Columbus. It will depart Cave Spring for Carrollton this morning.
