For Spring Tune-Up, riders travel at their own pace along a set route that includes rest stops with your favorite refreshments. You may choose to ride as many or as few miles as you like, ranging from 20 – 100 miles. The start/finish will be at the same location all weekend. At the end of each day’s ride, there will be food & drinks, hot showers, live music, and games. Some riders will choose to stay at local hotels.
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.

Winter Ride is a great late-winter escape, a relaxed multisport event suitable for all levels of biking. Each day ride to different locations in the St. Marys area and visit such attractions as Cumberland Island, Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, and Kings Bay Submarine Base. Each night’s stay is in hotels. Non-riders are also welcomed.
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.
The health and well-being of our riders, staff, volunteers, and partners is a priority for BRAG. We are committed to making decisions that align with this priority. We are committed to playing a constructive role to limit the spread of the virus which is why we are moving the 41st Annual Bicycle Ride Across Georgia to June 5 – 12, 2021. Same ride, routes, good times and good vibes! If you registered for Big BRAG 2020, your registration and merchandise purchases will be automatically transferred to 2021- you don’t need to do a thing.

Nearly 200 bicycle advocates, industry representatives, planners and elected officials will roll into Carrollton for the 2020 Georgia Bike Summit, Sept. 18-19.
“We are very excited to bring the 11th Annual Georgia Bike Summit to Carrollton,” said Georgia Bikes Executive Director Elliott Caldwell. “With the Bicycle Ride Across Georgia (BRAG) also coming to Carrollton this summer, 2020 is shaping up to be a big year for bicycling in the area.”
Each year, Georgia Bike Summit brings together a diverse group of stakeholders to share best practices, disseminate information and collaborate in building a bicycle-friendly Georgia. A secondary purpose of the summit is to showcase the bicycle culture and amenities of communities throughout the state.
“Carrollton has really focused on being a great place to ride a bicycle,” said Caldwell. “The dedication of many community members, the local government in creating the GreenBelt, as well as better on-road infrastructure, is bearing fruit with these kinds of events coming to Carrollton.“ In 2018 Carrollton earned Bicycle Friendly Community designation from the League of American Bicyclists. The League praised the city for embarking on a “bold vision to improve cycling.”
The Bike Summit is Georgia’s only statewide gathering for bicycle advocates. This is the first time the event is being held in Carrollton after being held in larger cities and on the coast for its first 10 years. Caldwell said the 2016 Georgia Trails Summit in Carrollton, which several Bike Summit organizers attended, positively influenced the decision to award the city the 2020 event.
