This will be an urban biking adventure that will begin at the Marietta Square.  We will ride on a section of the Mountain to River Trail between the Square and Kennesaw Mountain area then on the Noonday Creek multi-use trail out to Barrent PKWY via Old HYW 41.  We will be coming back by the Visitor's Center for a pit stip and then back to the Square via neighborhood streets from St. Anne over to Kirkpatrick and around. [see map below].   The ride will take us down sidewalks, bike paths, and streets/roads where we will have to negotiate traffic.  The ride will be fairly easy but there are some hills [see altitude section of map info].  

Here is a map of the route

Here are some photos along the ride.

We can all meet beginning at 9:45 near the large white covered stage [not the gazebo] on the side of the square.  You may want to keep my phone number handy just in case.  We have an ice rink for the holiday and it may be fairly crowded at the Square.  770 656 8686

Email me with any questions.  Hope to see you there!


 Some Pointers for the trip:

-it gets cold with the wind going down hill; there is an effect where you sweat climbing then get wind blasted coming down

-this is a moderately paced trip, if you will not be riding at that pace, keep your phone gps handy if you plan on going ahead of the group, we will come back through neighborhoods with many turns
