OVERVIEW: Many of our AOC members may be unaware that our four Metro Atlanta REI stores offer a wide variety of FREE tutorial classes. Topics range from backpacking, camping, and hiking to bicycling, paddling, climbing, skiing, favorite wilderness destinations, etc. The presentations are hosted in conference rooms at the REI stores by employee specialists who are authorities in the featured topics - also sometimes are presented by invited guest speakers.
BY THE WAY: If you'd like to make PERSONAL RESERVATIONS for yourself and friends at OTHER FUTURE FREE REI CLASSES, you can go online as follows to REI.com, check their upcoming schedule of in-store events and availability, and reserve your own personal spot(s):
|How to Get There:|
|Event Directions:||THE REI "ATLANTA STORE" is at 1800 Northeast Expy, Atlanta, GA 30329—just off I-85, about 4 miles toward downtown from "Spaghetti Junction" (I-85/ I-285 interchange). The store is on the southbound I-85 access road just 0.5 mile south of the Clairmont Road exit (Exit #91 - see I-85 Southbound & Northbound approach options below.) Their phone number is 404-633-6508.|
I-85 SOUTHBOUND DIRECTIONS: If you take The Clairmont Road exit (Exit #91) from I-85 southbound (e.g. from Spaghetti Junction) continue straight ahead from the traffic light at the end of the exit ramp (crossing Clairmont Rd) - then stay in the right lane of the access road to reach the store 0.5 mile ahead (just beyond the Briarwood Rd junction).
I-85 NORTHBOUND DIRECTIONS: If you take Exit #91 from I-85 northbound (e.g. from midtown Atlanta), get in the far left lane of the exit ramp before you reach the light at Clairmont Rd, which will loop you onto the southbound access road without any traffic lights. Then bear right on that access road for 0.4 mile to reach the store, just beyond the Briarwood Rd junction.
