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.
Please note that the time at which the roads reopen is approximate, as it is dependent upon how quickly the cyclists finish that part of the route.
The GA 400 Hospitality Highway Century Ride supports local cycling charities and Junior Flyers, a youth cycling team that fights childhood obesity.
