During my first week of employment at Wahoo Fitness, I went over to Atlanta, Georgia to meet everyone at . It was kinda cool to see the mothership in person, as I’ve only seen it previously from DC Rainmaker.

Within the first couple of days, we were kindly hosted by David, our Head of Engineering at his mansion, to some sweet barbecue, beers & golf cart shenanigans.

Cartersville

The team organised a spare bike for me during my stay. In the weekend Ben, Michael and I headed up north to Cartersville for a nice local scenic ride. I was told we‘d be riding near some shooting locations of The Walking Dead.

We managed to fit 3 road bikes into a rental car, and drove 50 minutes to car park, where we unloaded the bikes and began the ride.

We rode at a nice, steady pace, taking in the surroundings around us. The weather was perfect. Occasionally I’d spot the fluttering flags of Trump and America – a patriotic sight rarely seen anywhere else. After a gentle 50km, we made our way back to the carpark, and headed back to our AirBnb at Buckhead. We then wrapped up the evening with a local baseball game at SunTrust park.

Followed by Waffle House straight after the game.

Thanks Ben and everyone at Wahoo HQ for showing me around Atlanta. I had a great time and can’t wait for my next trip over!
