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.
