The Bicycle Ride Across Georgia is an annual odyssey of discovery of gorgeous Georgia by bicycle.  BRAG is a family-oriented tour.  It is not a race.  Riders travel at their own pace along a set route.  At the end of each day's ride, cyclists tent camp at a local high school or college.  Limited indoor camping will be available at all overnight sites, usually in the gym.  Some riders will choose to stay at local motels. The tentative route is to begin in Washington, with overnight stops in Thomson, Waynesboro, Metter, Jesup and end in Darien. Visit the BRAG website for more information.
