The 36th Annual Athens Twilight Criterium in downtown Athens is a professional cycling event and festival enjoyed by fans, families and racers alike. Held April 25-26, 2015, the Twilight Criterium is a favorite spot on the national cycling tour circuit, both for its unique evening format and the large crowds that gather in Athens' vibrant downtown area.

Founded in 1980 by Gene Dixon, the Athens Twilight Criterium was the first nighttime race in the United States in over 60 years. What began as one race with 40 competitors has since grown to 150 competing cyclists.
