The Claxton-Evans County Chamber of Commerce is proud to sponsor the
26th Annual Cruisin’ in the Country Bicycle Ride, Saturday, November 12th, 2022.
This year’s event will be headquartered at the Evans County Public Fishing Area, 4757 Area Line Road, Claxton, Georgia. This beautiful 372- acre site is owned and operated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and features a campground with 22 campsites complete with electricity, water, picnic table, fire ring and a comfort station with showers. Primitive campsites are also available. For camping information or to make a reservation, log on to http://reservations.gooutdoorsgeorgia.com.
Cruisin’ is a family friendly bicycle ride. It is not a race. Six different ride options will be offered to ensure there’s a ride suited for each skill level. Whatever route you choose, you will travel roads with minimal traffic and enjoy the beautiful countryside. While riding, you will benefit from SAG vehicles patrolling the routes as well as our award-winning, friendly, themed rest stops located every 10 to 20 miles. Rest stops will be stocked with water, Power-Ade, and various snacks. In addition, port-a-potties and/or rest rooms, and hand-washing stations will be available at each stop.
Six route options will be offered: 16- mile, 24- mile, 37- mile, 50- mile, 66- mile and the 100- mile, “Royce Smith Century Route”. Smith, a former UGA All-American football player, passed away unexpectedly in 2004. A co-founder of Cruisin’, he will always be remembered as having put his heart and soul into building this event. Maps and cue sheets are available to download and will also be available for pick-up at Cruisin’ headquarters. You can also access route information via Active.com
