The Money Road Cycling Club and the Greenwood-Leflore County Chamber of Commerce will host the 10th Anniversary of the BBB cycling event on Saturday, August 5, 2017. The rides begin on Howard St. in historic downtown Greenwood, Mississippi, the primary filming location of 2011's Oscar-winning movie, THE HELP. Mississippi's LARGEST RIDE saw record sign-ups of 947 riders in 2016 and this year will top 1,000, if you join in to ride the "flat and fast alluvial plains of the Delta".

BULLETIN: Important Lodging UPDATE

The 2017 BBB (Bikes, Blues & Bayous) cycling event is trending toward a new record for attendance thanks to you, the riders. Last year's registration was 947, but this year we're expecting it to easily top 1,000! That's great news, but we are concerned about everyone who needs overnight lodging finding accommodations to suit their needs.

To that end, we have the three points of contact listed below to inform BBB riders of lodging options.

· Greenwood Convention & Visitors Bureau: Danielle Morgan at 662-453-9197 or danielle@visitgreenwood.com

· BBB Hospitality Committee: Susan Meyer at (817) 578-4127 or msusanmeyer08@charter.net

· Greenwood Chamber of Commerce: Beth Stevens at (662) 453-4152 or info@greenwoodms.com

These folks are standing by to help, so don't hesitate to rely on them. They are familiar with all your lodging options in Greenwood and neighboring towns. Lodging options include; hotels (in town and nearby), RV hookups and weekend rentals of homes, rooms or other private property.

Be assured that BBB will do everything possible to once again extend the Delta hospitality you've praised us for!
