Roswell Cycling Festival – Alive and Rolling

If you’ve been seeing bicycles decorated by Roswell artists and businesses popping up around Roswell, you’ve seen the start of the “Roswell Cycling Festival – Alive and Rolling.” This month-long celebration culminates in two great events on April 24th and 25th.

Big Creek Mountain Bike Day

Saturday 4/24
10 am. - 2 pm
Big Creek Park Parking lot - 1600 Old Alabama Rd, Roswell GA 30076

This fun program for kids of all ages will be held at Big Creek Park. Parents bring your kids out and join in the fun. RAMBO will be serving up hamburgers and hot dogs, skills clinics, family group rides and kid's bike games with prizes! Adults will be able to demo the latest bikes provided by Roswell Bicycles. A dirt jump demo will be held in the Freeride area and the day will be a blast for all ages. Best of all, the entire event is a budget friendly price – free!

9th Annual Historic Roswell Criterium

Sunday, April 25

Canton Street, Roswell GA 30075

Speed, spectators, scenery – Historic Roswell Criterium has it all.

Start the day with the 8 am Mayors Ride in Roswell Area Park on Woodstock Road. Registration begins at 7 am followed by three recreational ride options which showcase the City of Roswell:

1) Family 6-mile tour around old town Roswell;

2) 20 mile Challenge that adds 14 miles of rolling hills to the tour ride;

3) The 40 mile Workout that adds 20 more challenging, beautiful miles.

Criterium races begin at 10:30 am and the last race of the day is a 90 minute professional race that begins at 6 pm. There is even a children’s race where children who complete the 2:30 pm Bicycle Safety Rodeo come out on the professional track for a 200 yard race.

Spectators will gather all along the route so bring your chairs and come prepared for a fun day. With children’s events and shopping at the quaint shops on Canton Street, there’s something for all ages to enjoy.
