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 Gran Fondo style bike ride along the beautiful scenic hills of Murray County in North Georgia.

What is a Gran Fondo? 

 A Gran 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, 20 mile, 50 mile and 62 mile. For the more experienced riders, the 62-mile course includes the infamous Fort Mountain climb!

Timing is provided by TopView Sports. This event is held and insured under USA Cycling permit #2019-2206.

All registrations include USA Cycling insurance, swag bag, and event shirt.

BAM will start and end at the Murray County Veterans Park Recreation Center
