Start and end your ride in the heart of Bartlett, on historic Main Street. You will ride two, three or four laps (you choose) around the 4.8 miles race loop where you’ll pass peaceful residential neighborhoods and great parks on safe car free roads. Ride as fast as you can, or choose a calmer pace. A rest and water stop is available at Leiseburg Park on the north side of the route.

Start Times

Start in waves with people of similar biking speeds. Each wave will also have a slow released start.

Speed Demon Wave powered by SRAM: 6:30 AM (drafting permitted in this wave only)

Middle of the Road Wave: 7:45 AM

Sunday Funday Wave: 9:30 AM ** All Sunday Funday participants have to finish course by 11:45 AM in order to reintroduce traffic to main streets.**

Packet Pick Up

PPU will open at 5:00 AM on the day of the event. Due to the three waves, there will be plenty of time for people to pick up their number and timing device at the start line. Remember it's a slow released start and riders will go in several groups to ensure safety. 

Timing and Route

Your timing chip will record your individual start and finish times, as well as your lap pace.

Ride confidently no matter your skill level. Our slow release start line will allow riders of all experience levels to take off comfortably without getting caught in a pack, and once you start you’ll enjoy a roadway clear of all car traffic.
