Our guests today…Basil Lyberg and John Manser, came into the studio to talk about their upcoming 24 Hours of Booty event which will be held in Sandy Springs on October 13-14
This year, the brand new Sandy Springs Booty Loop will come alive again with a host of cancer fighters. 24 Hours of Booty Atlanta will celebrate its third annual event and host 500+ riders who will raise more than $350,000 for cancer research and survivorship.
At the center of it all is Bootyville, their own little city, which also serves as the event headquarters over the 24 hours.
Riders set up campsites and canopies that they can sleep, or more importantly, rest and relax with friends off of the bike. The food tent is probably the most popular place outside of the course itself. Along with the three squares riders will receive they will have access to snacks, energy bars, water and sports drinks. Bootyville also is the site of our expo area where our corporate sponsors set up shop and offer a range of services including 24-hour bike support, raffles for special items and information about their services.
Along with national beneficiary, LIVESTRONG™, 24 Hours of Booty supports the Aflac Cancer Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The organizations are having a tremendous impact on our neighbors battling cancer, and we are proud to be able to support
Whether you ride, volunteer, donate or come out to cheer, we hope to see you at 24 Hours of Booty Atlanta!

Basil was named a “Rising Star” by FundRaising Success magazine.

They also hold rides to gather toys for their bi-annual Pirate Parties they throw at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in their “Zone”.
