First annual Bikes and Blues cycle tour set for May 6
By Caitlin Boland

The 12th annual Warrenton Cycle Tour will look a little different this year.
Hometown Warrenton is partnering with Visit Thomson, Georgia, and the Blind Willie McTell Blues Festival for Bikes and Blues.
“Last year at the festival or not long after, I was talking to Elizabeth [Vance] about a possible partnership,” said Cindy Rivers, manager of Hometown Warrenton and president/CEO of the Warren County Chamber of Commerce. “Then Don Powers, who is charge of the festival, said the festival will be the first Saturday in May, which is the same day as the cycle tour every year. We decided to partner because we thought it would be a good fit.”
Rivers said she had been looking for a way to have entertainment for after the cycle tour and a way to increase participation.
Participants in this year’s Bikes and Blues will receive a discounted Blind Willie festival ticket with the price of the cycle tour.
