Eric Broadwell, event director with GA 400 Century Ride, is in studio for this episode of Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio. Joined by co-hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick, Broadwell discusses the annual 100-mile bike race starting on GA 400 on today’s Around Atlanta segment of Radio.
Broadwell started his career as an aerospace engineer before moving on to IT and eventually landing in cycling advocacy. Broadwell and his kids raced bikes, and he quickly realized the interaction on the roads was not up to par with certain safety standards. This led Broadwell to go out into the community to educate and inform other cyclers on safety and fun! In addition to his work with cycling advocacy, Broadwell is also on the Board of Directors at Cobb EMC, a private pilot and works to flip houses and planes. A jack-of-all-trades, Broadwell is extremely active in several facets of the community!
The GA 400 Century Ride is a 100-mile bike race starting with three miles on GA 400 and leading down Highway 9. The whole race only disrupts traffic for 30 minutes, allowing for the most convenience and safety for both cyclists and drivers. In recent years, the GA 400 Century Ride also took on an incredible charitable organization, Emory Heart and Vascular Center. This newly formed center is one of the many charities benefiting from the race.
While the race is designed to be 100 miles upon completion, there are several alternative race routes for cyclists of all experience levels. The shortest race is nine miles and is named the “I Did it” ride. There are also 26, 44 and 60-mile options for varying skill levels. The race with the most participants is usually the 60-mile race.
This event has been growing over the past 12 years and saw 1,600 participants in 2019. The organizers of GA 400 Century Ride expect over 2,000 participants in the 2020 race. In addition to the race, the event offers plenty of live music, free beer and free lunch. There will also be vendors all around the area to interact with.
The event is set to take place on June 28 at 7:00 a.m. Anyone interested in signing up or participating in the event can visit www.GA400Century.com. You Can also listen to the full interview above for more information.
