 bbbbbbbbb

 

 

This is a scenic bike ride along the Greenway multiuse trail (walkers, joggers, cycling only) starting in Roswell. We'll go out about 8-9 miles out and then head back the same way.  Our pace is planned to be moderate at about 14 miles per hour. Faster riders can ride ahead since it's not possible to get lost on the trail.

NOTE: For safety, helmet required to be worn during this event.  No helmet, no bike ride.

OPTIONAL: After the ride we will get bagels at the Brooklyn Bagel & Deli a mile or two down Old Alabama Road.

WHAT IS A GREENWAY?

A greenway is a linear park. A greenway is about people and the land they love. It is about conservation. It is about recreation and alternative transportation. It is about environmental education. It is about connecting the quality of life Alpharetta now has with the future plan that will help maintain that quality of life. Our greenway is an investment in the future of Alpharetta...an Alpharetta that is green, with open spaces for people as well as natural areas for plants and animals.

The Big Creek Greenway is primarily a 12-foot wide concrete path that meanders through the deciduous woods along Big Creek. The greenway offers an ideal setting for walking, jogging, inline roller blading, and biking.
