500 bikers in Tifton

Group says they "ride" not "race"

Nearly 500 riders attended the Bicycle Ride Across Georgia event that Tifton is holding this weekend.

There are several different rides, not races, scheduled throughout the weekend to give people a view of the city and promote exercise. Riders came from as far as North Carolina to pedal 20, 50 or 100 miles around Georgia. Some even brought tents and plan to camp throughout the weekend.
