On Big BRAG, cyclists will average about 55 miles per day for one week, with a day off in the middle.

It may sound like a lot of riding, but you're fully supported by accompanying SAG vehicles and frequent, well-stocked rest stops every 12 - 18 miles. Your favorite snacks, drinks, fun activities, and great views are never too far away!

BRAG routes guide bike riders through some of the most friendly and welcoming towns. Plan to take your time along the way to eat some of the best food Georgia has to offer. Whether coming alone or with a group, you'll have an adventure of a lifetime. With at least 1500 participants, you'll definitely make new bike friends at BRAG!

When you pull into camp after your ride, stop by the BRAG Bar to grab a cold beverage, head to the hot showers on site, and then enjoy lunch from one of the food trucks. Each afternoon, we have BRAG-tivities scheduled like bike trivia, one-legged bike races, educational cycling classes, yoga, and massages. Every night we've lined up concerts, DJs, and festivals in each overnight town we stay.
