Noble Street Festival Weekend

March 28 is going to a busy day for the City of Anniston and Calhoun County.
To kick off the weekend's festivities, the Iron Mountain Challenge, formerly the Woodland, welcomes riders from across the southeast to a non-competitive bike ride, with varying lengths from 25-100 miles, along the Ladiga Trail and through the Talladega National Forest and Mountain Long Leaf Wildlife Refuge.
The 22nd annual ride is for the beginner to the most experienced riders, beginning at 7:30 A.M. on March 28 at the Anniston Aquatics and Fitness Center at McClellan. Riders will travel everything from Hwy 21, Hwy 431, through Pleasant Valley, Piedmont, White Plains, and back to Anniston. Share the Road.

The cyclists descend on Noble Street for the Sunny King Criterium and Noble Street Festival. With our annual Festival, including vendors, restaurants, kids' activities, live music and more, it's a great event for the whole family.
The Criterium brings cyclists from across the Globe to race, both amateurs and professionals, along a .7 mile course in Historic Downtown Anniston. The races begin at 10:00 A.M. and come to a close with professional riders after 8:00 P.M. Watch in awe and cheer on these great athletes all day on March 28.
The cycling weekend wouldn't be complete without the Fort McClellan Road Race on March 29. These elite riders will take to the road at 9:00 A.M. for a twenty mile loop on some of Anniston's most scenic roads and challenging climbs, like Bains Gap. Come catch the racing action with this 80 mile distance race.

  1. Thanks for this post on Noble Street Festival Weekend! MY kiddos are also asking me to take them to San Francisco for Christmas holiday party. I wonder if you could suggest some affordable family accommodations in SF!!
