The 43rd Bicycle Ride Across Georgia: Big BRAG 2022

On Big BRAG, cyclists will average about 55 miles per day for a week with a day off in the middle. It sounds like a lot, but we offer SAG and provide well-stocked rest stops every 12 – 18 miles with your favorite snacks and drinks, fun activities, and great views! BRAG routes take bike riders through some of the most friendly and welcoming towns and features some of the best food Georgia has to offer.

When you pull into camp after your ride, you’ll have access to the BRAG Bar where you can grab your favorite drink. Each day after the ride there are BRAG-tivities like bike trivia, one legged bike races, educational classes, yoga, massages, etc. Every night features tomfoolery in the town’s where we stay, like concerts, DJs, and festivals.

US Bicycle Route 21 Ride

The U.S. Bicycle Route System (USBRS) is a developing network of officially numbered interstate bicycle routes that connect America’s cities, suburbs, and rural areas. Georgia recently joined the USBRS by designating a system of roads and trails as US Bike Route 21.

BRAG’s US Bicycle Route 21 ride is a great intro to long distance cycling or a great tune-up for experienced riders. Even more so, there is great entertainment nightly with bands, local attractions in our overnight towns, and the BRAG Bar.  Each day we carry your luggage from town to town so you can focus on your riding. We also have plenty of rest stops each day so you can snack and get rehydrated along the way. Get a flat tire, medical issue, or bonk one day? No worries, we’ve got SAG (Support & Gear) that’ll come pick you up. More info.
