Memorial Day kicked off in a big way with the SB&T Bike Criterium and Road Race.

In the past, the race was a part of the Rock, Roll, and Run Weekend, but this year the SB&T Bike is a part of the Southwest Regional Series.

Rashelle Beasley with the Albany Convention & Visitors Bureau says this event will bring a lot of business and revenue to the city.

Officials with the race say they have up to 400 participants.
