1833 Broad Street

UPDATE 05/18

The weather crews can't seem to get the forecast right, so we're just gonna go for it and hope for the best!  Worst case scenario, we'll still have the cookout together, everyone will still get their koozies, AND we'll still raffle off the RECTEQ BULLSEYE GRILL!

Rider check in will be held at the Augusta Canal's Mill Village Trailhead shelter from 12pm-1pm, just across from the backside of the Kroc Center.  Look for the AJBW Tent!

Rider Checklist
Bike (tires inflated, chain lubed)
Water for the ride and a snack
Emergency repair kit
Be prepared for mud and ruts on the towpath
A towel, change of clothes, and rain gear if the weather moves in
A chair for the cookout
A positive attitude, ready for adventure

Now, let's do our anti-rain dances and see what mass optimism can do for tomorrow's ride
Celebrate National Bike Month and kick off National Bike to Work Week with all your family and friends at the Kroc to Lock bike ride!  This is a great way to enjoy the day aboard your bike at your own pace! 
The approximately 10 mile ride will start at Kroc Augusta, proceed up the Augusta Canal Towpath to the Headgates (or turn around anywhere along the way) and then head back to the green space at the Kroc for a post-ride cookout and a live DJ set by Matt the Mod!  
Bring your lawn chairs and blankets, we'll take care of the rest!
The grill will be going with hotdogs (veggie dogs available upon request), cold drinks on ice for everyone, and we'll be treating everyone to Pelican's Sno-Balls! 

BONUS!!!  With every registration, you'll also be entered into a raffle to win a Recteq RT-B380 Bullseye Wood Pellet Grill valued at $500, courtesy of the super awesome Recteq crew! 
Additional raffle tickets are available for purchase during registration check out, with 100% of proceeds going to the Augusta Canal National Heritage Area trail projects!

And we’ll have free commemorative Kroc to Lock Koozies at check-in, while supplies last!

100% of event net proceeds will benefit the Augusta Canal National Heritage Area and future trail projects!
