ROSWELL, Ga. The Roswell Cycling Festival celebrated its 13 year, and almost finished out of the rain.

The men's professional bikers pedaled through the sometimes heavy rain to conclude a daylong event filled with cycling activities for the entire family.

Hundreds once again lined Canton Street and its environs to watch some of the best cyclists in the country race literally elbow to elbow down city streets.

Some came to cheer friends and family, others to watch the action from a veranda with a cold beverage in hand.

The Roswell Criterium is as much a social event as a sporting event, and Canton Street restaurants do quite well.

It is also a time and place where politicians and the politically active meet during one of North Fulton's premier spring events.
