Day 3: Stage 5, Suwanee to Dahlonega

We had a late start from the house today so we didn’t manage to go into Cummings to see the riders pass on the route. Instead we drove straight to Dahlonega, which gave us ample time to grab some lunch in the quaint little town.

We set up about 50 meters from the finish to watch the riders come around the final turn and pour it on to the finish.

On our way to the camp site cabins for the night at Enota, we decided to travel the route that the peloton took to arrive in Dahlonega (going the opposite direction as part of it was on our way). It was amazingly beautiful and I cringed that the thought of the speeds they reached on the descents. To me they looked pretty technical but what do I know?
