Itinerary:

Columns Dr. is a beautful street with nice houses on both sides of the street.  It has a bike/walk/run paved section on the each side of the street.    Cochran Shoals Park trail is a wide, almost flat gravel trail surrounded by trees with the view of the Chattahoochee River on one side.    The plan is to bike Columns Dr back and forth twice and then bike Cochran Shoals trail back and forth to complete close to 13 miles.    

We will meet in the parking lot at the end of Columns Dr which is where Cochran Shoals Park is located.   Please plan to be there 10 minutes prior the starting time of 3:30 pm.  That will give us time to introduce ourselves and start on time. Give yourself time to purchase the $5.00 parking pass if you don't have the year long pass.
