Join us for a Saturday morning bike ride starting and finishing at the Jekyll Brewery in Alpharetta

- Optional lunch at the Jekyll Brewery -

 

We will start our morning bike ride from the Jekyll Brewery parking lot on Marconi Drive and ride to the shady Big Creek Greenway and follow the smoothly paved greenway path to Old Alabama Road parking lot, take a quick water break, and return on the same path back to Marconi Drive.  Once we reach Marconi Drive, we will do a triple loop of Marconi Drive and some optional hills.

We plan to finish and regroup at the Jekyll Brewery parking lot.

Our goal is to ride about 20 miles, but itinerary is subject to change. 

Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early at the Jekyll Brewery parking lot with your bike tires pumped up, water bottle filled & ready to ride. 

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

OPTIONAL: After completion of the AOC event, we will plan to stop at the Jekyll Brewery for a bite to eat and fun chat, while maintaining social distancing.  The Jekyll Brewery has outside seating and dining.  Bring your lunch money $$$ :)

 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.
