What’s fascinating about the annual Action Cycling 200 are the motivations of the cyclists who take part.
The ride, which held its sixth incarnation May 17-18, raises money for the Emory Vaccine Center. The event last weekend raised nearly $80,000, adding to the more than $300,000 cyclists have collected for the center since the ride’s inception in 2003.
My Southern Voice sports column this week includes interviews with a handful of those taking part, including a founder of the ride, a researcher at the vaccine center and riders. I included additional voices from the race in a post earlier this week.
