Event Information

VeloCity is being held on Saturday, May 5, 2018, and will kick off with a fun and inspiring pre-ride celebration on Friday, May 4, at the Georgia International Plaza in downtown Atlanta.

From our close course city ride to our 100-mile challenge, VeloCity offers an option for everyone.

Road riding not for you? Then join us in our indoor cycling tent!

Remember, it’s a ride, not a race. Every participant will enjoy the full support of our VeloCity team from start to finish.

9:45 AM start time

Experience downtown Atlanta like never before on this 5-mile closed-road course that will take you from the field of Mercedes-Benz Stadium, past Centennial Olympic Park, down Peachtree Street, and around the State Capitol. While this is a great route for first-time cyclists, families and those looking for a fun ride to support Grady - you will encounter a few of Atlanta’s “famous” hills.

There will be one rest-stop at approximately the half-way point of this route.
