The Brownwood Bike Rally is a fun annual event celebrating cycling, fitness and health for kids and adults. It includes road bike races and a bike safety rodeo for kids, a short Fun Race and more challenging Crit-CX competitions for adults (including a new women-only race this year!), a health fair, a food court and a festival area featuring a moon walk, crafts, and other family-friendly activities. Cyclists vie for cash, bike gear and other cool prizes, and an on-site raffle offers more chances for all to win more great stuff. All proceeds benefit the East Atlanta Kids Club, a nonprofit after-school tutoring, mentoring and enrichment program for promising youth.


Course for Kids & Adult Fun Bike Races


From Brownwood Park the 4 corner block style criterium course runs left onto Brownwood Ave, left on Pendleton Street, left on Gresham, left on Portland and left back to Brownwood Ave. The course has a small grade on the back side and some speed bumps. Entire course is asphalt.

No restrictions on types of bikes, tires or wheels. All styles of bikes are accepted (Road, Mountain, Commuter, Track, Tandem, Unicycle, Recumbent, Strange+Weird!) The 1-mile course does have speed bumps so please use appropriate wheels. Back by popular demand: Prize for Funkiest Bike. Entire course is asphalt.

Crit-CX Course Info

The race is a blend of Road Crit, CycloCross and Short Track MTB. (Half of the course is on road, the other half is a combo of a dirt south loop in Brownwood Park and a NEW grassy north loop by the rec center start/finish).  Contestants will head south on Brownwood Ave, left on Pendleton and right over the curb into the South Loop in Brownwood Park to return onto the crit course then bomb down the grassy North Loop where the finish line will be. No dismounts. Lots of fun to race and watch!!


Parking is available in the lot behind Graveyard Tavern (1245 Glenwood Avenue). You may also park on neighborhood streets near Brownwood Park, but please do not park on the cycling course, which includes the streets on the north end of Brownwood Park (Brownwood Avenue, Portland Avenue, Gresham Avenue, Pendleton Avenue) which will be marked by No Parking signs on street poles.

Registration: On Site Registration is available up to 15 minutes prior to each race/cycling event start time. RAIN OR SHINE. We will delay in cases of thunder/lightning or heavy rain, and cancel if the inclement weather is sustained. Helmets required.
