About This Activity

Ride one or both days.
Each day choose your loop from three scenic and enjoyable rides measuring 35, 65 or 100 miles. These carefully planned routes are well marked and traverse rolling back country roads with picturesque scenery and minimum traffic. Or ride this year's Silver Anniversary Fun Ride for kids and families — 2 or 4 miles along the Savannah River by the Hartwell dam. This is an official BRAG 2015 training ride.

This 25th annual ride is presented by the Kiwanis Club of Hartwell and will be held on Saturday-Sunday, May 23–24, 2015. We offer two days of well-marked routes through beautiful countryside with very little traffic and three different routes to choose from each day. All routes on Saturday cross the Hartwell Dam, a once a year opportunity! There's camping indoors or out at the Bell YMCA just outside of downtown Hartwell. Enjoy nearby restaurants and hotels, and head downtown on Saturday for the Cars & Guitars street festival. Your entry fee will benefit local charitable organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America and Hart Partners. Do you want to ride a short, medium, or long route? Do you want to ride for one day or two? Join us this Memorial Day Weekend for the Challenge of the Centuries bicycle ride and you can ride what you want!For the Silver Anniversary ride this year there will be a “Fun Ride” for kids and families. It will be at the Georgia River Recreation Area at the base of Hartwell Dam. The ride is along the river on a paved road and is for either 2 or 4 miles. Registration is a reduced rate of $15.00 for youth and $25.00 for adults. Mix and match your routes to tailor a 2-day training weekend right before the 2015 Bicycle Ride Across Georgia—this is an Official BRAG Training Ride. Or come for just one day and challenge yourself: Is it time for your first century ride? Is a 35 mile ride going to be your longest bike ride ever? Either way, we're prepared to make this a fun weekend for your personal cycling challenge. Register early to save $5 and receive a free t-shirt. Join us on Facebook to share your photos from the ride. Start off your summer this Memorial Day Weekend with a memorable and challenging fun bike ride—or two!Map alert!
