Brownwood Bike Rally

Brownwood Bike Rally

History

As we approach the 17th annual Brownwood Bike Rally, we celebrate a history of community engagement here in East Atlanta that has seen thousands of kids, teens, and adults come together to rally around one another and around EAKC. Over the years, this event has included races geared toward kids, CRIT-CX events for adults, bike rodeos, bike safety demonstrations for all ages, health fairs, arts and crafts, raffles, and vendors from around our community. It’s a day to celebrate cycling as an anchor of our programming and to recognize the community of support that we have among our local cycling groups, corporate sponsors, local businesses, and East Atlanta neighbors. In 2020, the rally moved to a virtual, asynchronous format that saw participants log miles over the course of seventeen days of fundraising and fun-raising. We celebrate cycling here at EAKC, not only because it’s lots of fun for our kids, but also because it represents a crucial competency that can create access to opportunities in a city where equitable access to job centers is disparate, and many Atlantans rely upon alternative and public forms of transit to connect the dots.

2021 Event

In 2021, we return to in-person activities alongside a shorter, virtual, asynchronous rally. We will kick off the 17th annual Brownwood Bike Rally on Monday, September 13, 2021 with the virtual event running through Friday September 17, 2021, and the goal is simple for the virtual challenge: log as many miles as possible.
