PEACE, LOVE, MACC!
2016 One Love Century Ride Report
You helped MACC do it again! Thank you to all of our 2016 One Love Century riders and volunteers; because of your gracious support of the 11th Annual MACC One Love Century we are able to generously donate to our beneficiaries: the Dick Lane Velodrome East Atlanta Kids Club, Brag Dream Team, Cycles and Change, SOPO and We Cycle Atlanta.
Our beneficiaries promote cycling among our local kids through various programs which teach cycling safety, respect and the overall love of the sport.
One love 2015 Ride Report
One Love, the only Love you need!
This year's Metro Atlanta Cycling Club's (MACC) ONE LOVE CENTURY went off without a hitch! The weather was perfect, sponsors support perfect, volunteer's enthusiasm perfect, road conditions perfect, the joy and sense of accomplishment on cyclist's faces PERFECT (even with all that climbing). Cyclists came from several states (AL, CA, GA, FL, IL, LA, MT, NC, NY, SC, TN and WA) to experience the 10th annual One Love Century and MACC delivered! Many cyclists expressed how great their ride was and praised the awesome services they received.
What a great event for the City of Atlanta and something new for MACC! Like many other cycling enthusiasts and organizations we too wanted to help with promoting cycling in the City of Atlanta. We decided not just to become a festival sponsor, but to also hold a key festival event “The Living Walls Bicycle Tour”. Well, not only was the ride a great success for MACC and our ACF and Living Walls partners, but the entire festival was one great public relations event.
3 days, 200 miles, One Love - PRICELESS! It was a great time, had by all. Whether you stay in a hotel, camp out in the field or rent a bed in the dorm type shelter this is one biking adventure you would truly enjoy. The people are great and the food even better. I mean really, what ride have you been on where everyday they start you out with a home cooked breakfast (eggs, grits, pancakes, sausage, fruit, etc.…) and then nourish you with a home cooked dinner (chicken, salmon, short ribs, green beans, salads, corn on the cob, free beer etc.). And the roads, OMG they are fantastic! Bare minimum traffic and the beauty of nature surrounds your every turn (rolling hills, green pastures, wild flowers, 1’000 year old trees…).

Hot Chocolate was definitely needed
for this extra cold event! MACC
provided 14 bike Marshall's to escort
the 23,000+ walkers and runners
while monitoring the course
throughout the day. Participants
were excited about the run and very
welcoming to our presence.
