The Atlanta Cycling Festival is an annual bicycling event that takes place every May or June in Atlanta. Since 2014, the festival has provided bicycle fans with an opportunity to experience Atlanta on two wheels. The festival attracts over 3,000 participants in mass bike rides. Atlanta Cycling Festival features vehicle-free rides on roads for cyclists only, such as Marietta Street or Howell Mill Road. The event starts with a bike parade with many free activities for grown-ups and children.
Atlanta One Ride is another highlight of the Atlanta Cycling Festival. The riders start at various points around the city to meet at Centennial Olympic Park at a specific time to ride together to the Georgia Beer Garden on Edgewood Ave. There is also a Big Closing Bash at Eventide Brewing in Grant Park with lots of beer, food vendors and a Ride Zone for kids.
The Atlanta Cycling festival helps kids learn to ride a bike with a special class for kids 2-5 with short bike rides to practice. Strider Bikes and helmets will be provided. The class takes place at Cabbagetown Park in Kirkwood.
