With help from Maggie and Katie Sweeney, and the Velodrome Century Committee, we are happy to announce that we will be hosting our very own century ride on Sunday the 11th of October, 2009. Called the Velodrome Century, and taking in some of the best roads that south-west Atlanta has to offer, this ride is a fundraising effort by the EPVA, to allow us to continue and to grow our Bicycle Little League program and to help in the addition of our Junior Racing program

Thanks to Lake cycling Shoes

Big Thanks go out to Lake Cycling Shoes for their donation of 18 pairs of cycling shoes for our kids program. Without support of companies like Lake Cycling we'd have a much tougher time kitting our kids out to ride, so Thanks to them.
