BikeAthens is going riding!! That’s right–after 20 years of advocating for transportation choices, we’re taking the weekend off, and heading out on a leisurely Ride That Owns Itself. You are cordially invited to join us!
In honor of Athens unique history, the Ride that Owns Itself will wind its way through the most beautiful roads in all of Georgia. We have two fully supported routes–44 and 66 miles–that tour the bucolic countryside north of Athens. Even better, we’ll be breaking bread together afterward at the downtown Athens Creature Comforts Brewery, where your ride registration includes a private brewery tour, beer samples, and a specialty glass! (Those under 21 ride for free. Kids under 18 can ride with a paying adult.) While dinner is not included in the registration price, we will have good, cheap food from a local vendor available on-site.
After the tour, we’ll all recover together at the Creature Comforts brewery. Friends and family who may not be able to make the ride can register for just the brewery tour. All the event profits go to support BikeAthens and your favorite BikeAthens programs.
Ride registration includes the fully supported ride, a BikeAthens Membership, and the free private Creature Comforts Tour and glass. The first 60 registrants will also receive a free BikeAthens Get Noticed t-shirt! Sweet!!!
The ride will start at Creature Comforts beautiful downtown location. Car parking will NOT be available on site. You may pick up your ride packet the night before.
Here at BikeAthens, we love cycling for the way it builds community. As a result, we are doing something different with our ride. Rather than having a group start, we are aiming for a group finish. Our check-in / registration table will be open from 10:00AM – 4:00; you and your group may hit the road whenever you’d like, with the goal that we’ll all finish around the same time.
Suggested start times: 12:00PM for the 66 miler. 2:00PM for the 44 miler
Brewery doors open at 5:30, dinner start a 6:30PM
