35th bike ride across Georgia stops in Jesup

bikersHundreds trekked across Wayne County on two wheels last weekend as the annual Bicycle Ride Across Georgia made its stop here Friday afternoon.

However, Jesup was not the first stop in the cross-state jaunt. BRAG riders made six stops over seven days from Washington all the way to Darien.

Riders who made the entire trip traveled more than 300 miles, and some opted out of the rest day and rode an additional 36-100 miles.

Several rest stops were stationed along the cyclists’ routes to provide a safe place for them to rest and rehydrate.

Bikers riding the BRAG route were required to adhere to a “BRAG Safety Pledge,” which lists safety precautions riders should take while on the road.
