There will be a kids area with activities for families to enjoy and plenty of green space to let your little ones stretch their legs. In addition, there will be a FREE kids race on the bricks at 11am!  Ages 5-8 and 9-13 will race in two different heats down Court Street (parental waiver required).


In the past year, the Athens cycling community lost three of its beloved members. The Athens Brick Criterium would like to do a small part to honor these men and invites all to join in a memorial lap to give tribute to them (or any loved one that you have lost). To participate, gather at 4:30 on Washington Street by the Parking Garage.

The Memorial Lap will be one lap around the course in honor of Dr. Michael Ginder, David West, and Larry Guy (pictured left to right).
