I'll be there too! The weather is supposed to be great! I'd get there early if you don't want to sit in traffic, I hear they have 800+ registered.

I've decided to give it a try this year.

But, how early is "early"? I usually try to arrive at organized rides an hour before the start. Do you think two hours would be enough?

Two hours should be enough, I plan to get there between 6:15-6:30. I think I got there at 7 last year and had to sit in some traffic and park in the back of the school on one of the fields.

I am probably less critical of organized rides then most. But it was fine.

Not much traffic, decent roads, good rest stops and post ride food options. Tommy Lee Cook had zero cars by the time I got there (same experience two days later at the Labor Day Metric Century). Think it had a record number of riders at 900 this year.

My only complaint is that the parking fills up fast and was already parking in the back despite getting there at 6:50. But that's the same story every year and other ATL based rides (BBC, Wilson, Covington, etc.). So probably not a worthy complaint...especially since I am used to lower scale rides majority of the time in which I can get there 15 minutes prior and be fine.

Only did the 60 mile option. The support for the 100 mile option seems minimal with only a water stop on that long loop.
