Cycling in Sandy Springs, Georgia Bicycle racing has a home in Sandy Springs. From the Hospitality Highway Century Ride, which raises funds for Georgia transplants, to the final race of the USA Southeast Crit Series’ “Speed Week,” which is a criterium race involving seven Southeastern cities, with the grand finale taking place in Sandy Springs. Sandy Springs, Georgia’s sixth largest city, is only a few minutes from Atlanta, yet it offers beautiful scenery and a natural environment that makes you forget how close you are. Sandy Springs is proud of its dedication to the environment, a commitment that shows in the city’s green space. Sandy Springs makes an effort to use its natural environment to create sports facilities whenever possible and also place its sports facilities within its natural environment. In Sandy Springs, you’ll find softball fields just a short walk from rivers, soccer fields in parks with nature trails and canopies of magnificent trees and natural wonders surrounding everything. But no discussion of the remarkable natural wonders of the city of Sandy Springs would be complete without mentioning the Chattahoochee River. With 20 miles of its shoreline stretching through Sandy Springs, the river offers abundant recreational and competitive sporting opportunities to Atlantans and guests of the city. All of these things combine to offer competitive cyclists a myriad of reasons to come to Sandy Springs. Beautiful scenery, and lots to do after a day of hard pedaling – what could be better?
