Oconee Forever hosted its first ever, "Rally in the Valley," event on June 9, 2012. From cycling enthusiasts, to leisurely riders, the event centered upon a ride through the beautiful Tamassee area, namely in the Cheohee Valley.
Conservation Theory played live bluegrass music as participants feasted on delicious barbeque. Local vendors were there, raising awareness about the importance of locally made products. Oconee Forever took the opportunity to educate locals about the importance of conservation agreements and sensible growth given the prominent development that continues to emerge around the scenic area.
The event was a huge success, and likely the first of many Rally in the Valleys to come!
