Event Information

VeloCity 2019 will once again start from the field of Mercedes-Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta, on Saturday, May 4, 2019! New this year, we are excited that the VeloCity Finish Line Festival will be at the brand new The Home Depot Backyard, which includes a shower trailer, massage tent, free beer and wine, free food from Loyal Q, two private concerts from ATL Collective, a kids zone, expo, and more. Remember, it’s a ride, not a race. Every participant will enjoy the full support of our VeloCity team from start to finish. Check out photos from VeloCity 2018!

The Routes

$25 Registration Fee

Experience downtown Atlanta like never before on this 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.

This is a great distance for cyclists of all abilities and will head southwest from Georgia International Plaza on the outbound roads as the 100- and 50- mile courses. Directional signage and course marshals will steer you along the way, and you will encounter a few modest climbs that will challenge your endurance. Rest stops will be found approximately every 10 miles.
