Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.
***** NOT A BEGINNERS RIDE *****
For new members and/or members without recent documented AOC D3 bike riding related experience, please email the trip leaders explaining your recent long distance riding experience & history. You may be moved to the waiting list until we hear back from you and approve you for the ride.
This is a no- drop road ride so no one will be left behind, but if you can't keep up with the group and/or follow the bike route directions, you may be asked to turn around or Uber your way back to the finish. You must feel comfortable riding on busy and crowded streets and bike paths in a group

Spinning Time On The Beltline
Circles get a bad rap...
Feel like you're riding in circles? Spinning like a top? Don't let life throw you for a loop!
Cinch up your belt, grab your bike and come spin with us on one big circle! We're circumnavigating Atlanta on the BeltLine.
Atlanta has an amazing number of parks connected like the green jewels of a necklace along the existing and proposed BeltLine loop including:
Historic Fourth Ward Skate Park
DH Stanton Park
Adair Parks (I and II)
Rose Circle Park
Hemphill Water Reservoirs Park
Bobby Jones Golf Course
Tanyard Creek Park
We'll traverse city streets, visit interesting in-town neighborhoods, view some of the amazing skyline vistas around the city and revel in the shady spots in the many parks along the way!
- Optional Breakfast -
You're invited to join us at Julianna's Crepes for a bite to eat and/or refreshment after the ride. Plz bring $$$ to pay for what you eat & drink :)Julianna's Crepes775 Lake Ave NE, Atlanta, GA +1 404-436-1825http://www.atlantacrepes.com/
Our Group Riding Plan
Our plan is to cycle 28 +/- miles on and around the Beltline Trail. We will start and finish our ride at Krog Street Market.
Starting time is at 7:30 AM near the bike racks at the side entrance of Krog Street Market. You will want to arrive 7:20 AM to check-in.
We will ride at a two wheel moderate pedal pace (Not too fast, not too slow) and enjoy the city and parks on our route.
This is NOT a flat greenway, Silver Comet ride, or speed race to see who can finish first - there will be traffic, hills, paved and uneven roads, and many stops & turns during our ride.
We will plan to stay together as a group, stopping at most turns and parks to re-group & re-energize with a few gulps of water or Gatorade.
