We headed down towards Warm Springs, Georgia this past weekend for a fun drive with the Peachtree Chapter of the BMW Club. About thirty of us had waxed, polished and detailed our babies before we met at AllSpeed Autoworks in Peachtree City. Allspeed was a great starting point, with a showroom full of cars to drool over like a vintage Road Runner in neon green and lots of sexy coupes and convertibles, (more my speed!). After a quick briefing on the route by organizer Peter Waldeck, (yes, there is a connection, he’s my brother-in-law), the group headed out and stopped on the side of the road for pictures and to admire each other’s rides. Then we were off on twisty turn- y and obscure back roads. I don’t often get a real glimpse of rural Georgia, so this was a treat to ride through the scenic tiny towns and mile after mile of rolling hills and small farms. Our destination, Warm Springs, is famous because of Roosevelt’s Little White House. Before lunch, we strolled the sidewalks and checked out a couple of charming and quirky downtown spots. Don’t miss the motorcycle museum. The name is a misnomer – there is much more than just motorcycles inside. For $5 you’ll see everything from Marilyn Monroe memorabilia to Houdini’s handcuffs! We took advantage of a tip on a popular local barbeque joint, Mac’s Bar-B-Que. And we weren’t disappointed. The juicy pork sandwich, tangy coleslaw and beans with brown sugar fueled us up for the quick interstate drive back to the city.
