Atlanta Peachtree Road Rollers

Athens to Atlanta Road Skate 2021

A2A (D2A) could not happen without the hard work of its volunteers. If you can't skate it, volunteer it! This year, due to COVID-related permitting issues in Athens, we will be holding only the 49-mile Dacula-to-Atlanta skate, and a 16-mile CP5-to-Atlanta skate. Friday and Saturday events will be staged in Atlanta, with Sunday events starting in Dacula, finishing in Atlanta.

The event occurs during the weekend of October 22-24, 2021, culminating with the main event (49 or 16 miles to Atlanta) on Sunday, October 24th. Recruit a friend, and sign up to help make this event happen!
