This is not a beginner ride.  Please be comfortable with a relatively longer distance on roads and hills. 

Grab your bikes and join us for some FREE fun on the beautiful back roads around Cartersville.   We’ll be cycling a 31 mile loop beginning at the Budweiser Plant near Cartersville, Georgia.    Following country lanes along pastures and farms, over the river and through the woods, biking the back roads is a great way to spend a Sunday morning on a bicycle.

This is not a beginner ride, so here are a few words of caution.  This is not a flat greenway ride.  Please expect some hill climbing and the fun downhills that make the grind worth your time.  We will be travelling on actual two-lane country roads which, although not heavily travelled, can occasionally cause a small parade of cars or trucks behind us so we will mostly be cycling single file to allow them to pass when they can.

We will be stopping several times to regroup, take a sip or just grab a breath.   Although this is a no-drop ride, if you are unable to keep up with the group you may be asked to ride back on the shorter route to the starting point.

We recommend a road bike although you can ride a hybrid.  For your safety, helmets are required.  Please wear light or brightly colored clothing and have working front and rear lights for visibility. 


Budweiser lets riders park in the lot to the right as you drive in.  Park on the side away from the factory along the edge of the lot (they are closed on Sundays). Please do not litter or change in the open.

-Bicycle helmet

-There is water and bathroom along the route but may not be where you want them so we suggest bringing your own water or Gatorade.
