20,000 cycling fans

That's how many people are expected to be in downtown Chattanooga this afternoon - all packing in to catch the end of Stage 3 of the Tour de Georgia. And you can bet I'll be one of the 20,000 lining the street watching the cyclists make their final sprints to the finish.

People from all over the world make the trip to Georgia every spring to watch the race, and this year for the first time it's crossed over the Tennessee state line. Although Chattanooga is barely in Tennessee (I literally live less than a quarter mile from the Georgia state line), we're all excited to have the Tour come to our town.

Hopefully I'll get some good pictures to post for you guys. And cross your fingers that it doesn't pour buckets, as the forecast is calling for!
