There’s only one place where you can see some of the best cyclists in the country, live music, and tens of thousands of people roaming the streets with half-empty solo cups – Athens Twilight. And lucky for you, it’s coming soon!
Athens Twilight, sponsored in part by your very own J House Media, kicks off the weekend on Friday, April 29th. Just go prepared to have a great time!
The Athens Twilight Criterium, founded by Gene Dixon in 1980, was the first of its kind for more than 60 years in the United States. Twilight began as a single race with forty participants and has grown to host a variety of separate races and special events – the main event being the 80k men’s race around downtown Athens.
This infamous race is a favorite hot spot on the national cycling tour circuit, both for its special evening events and the massive crowds that flock to the unique downtown retail and entertainment district of Athens, Georgia.
