Description: We are excited that the 2018 Georgia Polar Bear run will once again start at Atlanta Motorsports Park. Thanks to AMP for opening their doors to our group and to allow a little warming up before we take to the roads. Our 80 mile route and destination will, of course, be different and we will end up at Barnsley Gardens. Note your calendar now because you won't want to miss it! As in the past couple of years, we will once again be raising money for the ALS Foundation.
AMP has a large room for us to meet in prior to the drive, and facilities available for a pre departure pit stop. We will be wheels up at about 9:30 and the drive will take just under two hours, putting us in right at lunch time.
Barnsley offers multiple dining options. The Beer Garden is a casual, outdoor restaurant with a fire pit, and large trees strung with twinkling lights, the Beer Garden offers a menu of salads, paninis and bratwurst as well as more than 30 craft beer selections.

The Rice House is open on Fridays and Saturdays for dinner hours only (5:30-10PM) and is a bit more upscale dining focusing on seasonal Farm to Table menu options.
