It was a beautiful spring day in Decatur for the 6th Annual GA Rides to the Capitol. Commissioner Boykin reported that this was one of the biggest turn-outs yet. Organizers estimate over 1800 riders arrived at the Capitol. Lt. Gov. Cagle rode from Decatur and thoroughly enjoyed himself and a number of first-time elected officials say they will be back next year. Governor Deal spoke to the group at the Capitol and ended up staying for awhile for pictures. Decatur had a big group of Glennwood students riding and they were able to get their pictures taken with the Gov. and others. Decatur’s finest were well represented with three officers on bikes and Officer Bob on his motorcycle escorting the group.
