Calhoun County Cycling

May 1, 2012

On April 21st, Anniston was a city of cyclist in town for the Noble Street Festival and Cheaha Challenge.

At the Noble Street Festival, Wig’s Wheels had a group of stunt bikers performing in front of their shop along Noble Street. Restaurants, from Cooter Brown’s to Mellow Mushroom, lined Noble Street for the Red Diamond Restaurant Tour.


Laughter, smiles and music resonated from the carnival like Kid Zone & Music Cafe.


All the while, the events of the Sunny King Criterion raced through and around downtown Anniston.

Sunday, April 22nd, area cyclists and cyclists from all over the U.S. took on a challenge, the Cheaha Challenge.


Endurance and determination were key as around 700 participants took on various mile options and the steep climb of Horseblock, Adam’s Gap,and Cheaha. Some courageous riders, including the Chamber’s Manager Linda Hearn, took on the 102 mile option. On-lookers stood in amazement at the amount of dedication and drive the cyclists displayed as they biked across Calhoun County.
Events like this and others display to residents and visitors all that Calhoun County has to offer.
