The Hospitality Highway Bicycle Ride draws more than 1,500 cyclists of varying skill levels to the area. Riders can select from 9, 27, 45, 62, and 101-mile routes.
The longer rides traverse country roads in Fulton, Cherokee and Forsyth counties and pass beautiful horse farms and landscape. Some riders will take over seven hours to complete the 101 mile option.
While most roadways will not be closed for the event, rolling lane closures should be expected. Motorists should anticipate traffic delays along the effected routes and are encouraged to exercise caution and avoid these areas if possible.
Should you encounter cyclists, please remember that Georgia law requires motorists to allow a minimum of 3 feet between your vehicle and the cyclist when passing.
