Southern Transcon - Finish in Tybee Island GA

Friday Oct 6 marked the end of the 2017 PAC Tour Southern Transcontinental.  As I previously mentioned, I only participated for the final week of the tour (western edge of AL to Tybee Island GA), about 550 miles in 5 days.  

The last day was 87 miles and pretty level, although accompanied by some headwinds and a very brief little rain shower about half an hour from the end point.  As we drew closer to Savannah, traffic increased significantly, especially large truck traffic.  This made for tense riding, but thankfully there were no close calls or accidents in this section.

PAC Tour puts on a very nice closing banquet with a slide show and presentation of individual plaques to the riders.  The final host hotel (Hotel Tybee) looks right out at the ocean and was a great venue for the end of the trip.


One of the lovely streets in Savannah.  Plenty of Spanish moss and huge historic homes
