Tour de Pig! (Not France)
Last Saturday was the first annual Tour de Pig Bike Ride here in Athens! It was four different rides: 62, 42, 21 and 3-mile rides beginning at the courthouse and ending at the Piggly Wiggly in Elkmont. These rides were to support the funding of a much-needed bike trail through beautiful historic Athens and Limestone County.
My brother Carl helped put this event together and asked me to shoot some cool pictures of it. My friend Carla and I had a ball shooting the cyclists! They were serious--let me tell you! Just look at those cool outfits! Despite the very cool temps we set out in her convertible Beetle on that beautiful fall morning,let the top down and stuck out our long zooms! We got some great shots and fun angles. We felt like sports papparazzi on the move! There is no prettier countryside than Limestone County on a fall day-it was a great event--thank you everyone who helped and volunteered! Feel free to support the Limestone County 2 Wheel Trail by calling 256 . 232 . 8725. If you were there that day and want to view/order photos you can do so on Pictage. Just enter "Tour de Pig" in the search event section! A portion of the proceeds will go toward the LC2WT!
Go Paul go!!
Downhill Carl! Weee!
