Welcome to Bike Around Murray


2019 marks BAM’s 6th year anniversary and we are excited to bring another successful bike event to North Georgia!

Bike Around Murray (BAM) is a Grand Fondo style bike ride along the beautiful scenic hills of Murray County in North Georgia.

What is a Grand Fondo? 

 A Grand Fondo is not a race. It is open to everyone of all fitness levels. There are timing cutoffs to help guide you in selecting the best course for you. Race license is not required to participate.

Our goal during BAM is to offer a healthy balance of bike route options, catering to both our extremely competitive, as well as casual, just-for-fun riders. With that in mind we have 4 routes to choose from, the 10 mile, 22 mile, 50 mile and 62 mile. For the more experienced riders, the 62-mile course includes the infamous Fort Mountain climb!

BAM will start and end at the Murray County Veterans Park Recreation Center
Packet Pickup – Murray County Veterans Park Recreation Center 
651 Hyden Tyler Rd. Chatsworth, GA 30705
Friday, Sept 6 – 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Saturday, Sept 7 – 6:45 am – 7:45 am
Race Day Registration will be from 6:45 am – 7:45 am.

As we continue to plan this event, we welcome your thoughts and suggestions. We also welcome volunteers!
