BeltGrind 2022

The BeltGrind is an annual bicycling odyssey through southern space and time: an adventurous time trial for some, a casual cycling tour of home for others. It’s the first two-wheeled community race-and-ride along Atlanta’s evolving former railway corridor.

Metro Atlanta Cycling Club Beginner / Casual Ride

This is an opportunity for a beginning cyclist to ride on city streets versus the Silver Comet or Arabia Mountain Trails. See what it’s like to ride in a group. Also, a chance for the experienced cyclist to “get in a spin” and share tips and info with newer riders. The long option is 28-miles. For the “true beginner,” there is an 18-mile option. No One Will Be Left Behind!!!

UPDATE:

Due to the spike in COVID-19 infections as a result of the Delta variant and the lack of vaccination options for youth under 12 years of age, the Youth Bike Summit (YBS) National Steering Committee has decided to postpone the 2021 Youth Bike Summit in Atlanta planned for October 8th – 10th.  In consultation with the BRAG Dream Team and the YBS Atlanta Youth Advisory Council the YBS National Steering Committee will select a new date for the 2022 Youth Bike Summit by December 2021. 

 

After a pandemic year of sheltering in place and maintaining social distance while wearing masks, the Youth Bike Summit is back and it will take place in Atlanta the weekend of Oct. 8 – 10. The BRAG (Bike Ride Across Georgia) Dream Team is the host organization for this national gathering and Wilderness Works is the host site. Due to the vaccination campaign limits, the 2021 Youth Bike Summit will be designed to maximize safety for the youth and adults who attend this special event.
