Meeting at the Decatur town square, we'll take an urban tour through scenic Oakhurst, Kirkwood, Reynoldstown, and Piedmont Park.  We'll go through the Krog Street Tunnel, up the Beltline, and take a break in Piedmont Park.  Then we'll head back down the beltline and exit at the silver rhino head sculpture.  This week we’ll take the Stone Mountain Bike path through Freedom Park, Candler Park, and finally to Decatur.  Much of this ride is through neighborhood streets which don't have a lot of traffic.... but this is not a beginner biker ride.  There will be urban traffic! We cross a couple of busy intersections!  There will be beltline unpredictability! There are short but steep hills.  We may walk short sections... such as Krog Street Tunnel.  I will set a leisurly to moderate pace and we'll stop frequently to make sure we have everybody. 

Fair Weather Only!  If it looks like rain, we'll cancel.
