This is a 3 day bicycle ride & camping event starting in Chattanooga, TN ending in Atlanta (Mableton really) with overnight camping stops in Summerville & Rockmart, hosted by BRAG (Bicycle Ride Across Georgia). Our friends at BRAG are giving AOC members registered for this event a 20% discount on registration for this ride (discount code will be emailed once you sign up) .
The U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS) is a developing network of officially numbered interstate bicycle routes that connect America’s cities, suburbs, and rural areas. Georgia recently joined the USBRS by designating a system of roads and trails as US Bike Route 21. BRAG is hosting the 2nd annual ride on September 29 through October 1.
US Bicycle Route 21 is a great intro to long distance riding or a great tune up for experienced riders. This is a show and go event. YOU RIDE AT YOUR OWN PACE. This event is not a race. The AOC will camp together. There is great entertainment nightly with bands and local attractions in our overnight towns. Each day BRAG will carry your luggage from town to town so you can focus on your riding. BRAG will also have 3 or more rest stops each day so you can snack, get rehydrated, rest and talk to friends along the way. Get a flat tire, medical issue, or bonk one day? No worries, BRAG has SAG (Support & Gear) that'll come pick you up. Nightly there will be food trucks and food vendors on site, the Red Brick beer truck and bands. This is an athletic event so quiet time is at 10:00 pm and we encourage responsible drinking.

In Summerville, the town goes all out for us. In Rockmart we stay at the SpaceLand Skydiving Center and they put on a display of Skydiving by their instructors for us and you can skydive yourself if you wish to do so.
