25th Annual Cruisin’ in the Country

7:30 pm at the Evans County Public Fishing Area - 4757 Area Line Rd, Claxton, GA
The Claxton-Evans County Chamber of Commerce is proud to sponsor the 25th Annual Cruisin’ in the Country Bicycle Ride, Saturday, November 13th, 2021. Cruisin’ is a family friendly bicycle ride. It is not a race. Six different ride options will be offered to ensure there’s a ride suited for each skill level. Whatever route you choose, you will travel roads with minimal traffic and enjoy the beautiful countryside. While riding, you will benefit from SAG vehicles patrolling the routes as well as our award-winning, friendly, themed rest stops located every 10 to 20 miles. Rest stops will have a different look this year due to the pandemic, however, each will be stocked with water, Power-Ade, and various snacks. In addition, port-a-potties and/or rest rooms, and hand-washing stations will be available at each stop. With the ever changing COVID-19 pandemic situation, plans are subject to change. However, we feel confident, following local and state directives, and adhering to safety guidelines that we can host a safe and fun cycling event. Your safety and health are our #1 priority!
