ROSWELL, Ga. More than 1,000 bicycle enthusiasts took to the streets in the early morning of June 28. Their agenda the have run doing what they love to do: ride bikes.

For six years, a portion of Ga. 400 has been shut down for the annual Ga. 400 Hospitality Highway Century.

Bicycles are typically not allowed on controlled freeways so the chance to ride a bike on the freeway brings an added thrill to cyclists.

Roswell was designated a Bicycle Friendly Community in 2006 and has attracted many cyclists to their roads. Roswell Mayor Jere Wood and Transportation Director Steve Acenbrak are avid cyclists and help promote the sport in their town.

The event supported local cycling charities and a youth cycling team that fights childhood obesity, the Junior Flyers.

But Ga. 400 was simply the beginning of what, for some, was a ride of over 100 miles. The longer rides traverse country roads in Fulton, Cherokee and Forsyth counties and pass beautiful horse farms and landscape up to Stone Mountain.
