Atlanta Georgia Bicycle BeltLine Tour

April, 2010

 

The Altanta beltine http://www.atlantabike.org - A 22- mile loop of multi-use trails, and a green space that encircles the urban core of Atlanta.

We did The BeltLine Bike Tour  http://www.atlantabike.org/bbt2010  

What a great ride. It was a perfect mid-70's temperature day.  Here's the info and pictures are below.

None of the beltline is built yet, so we rode on roads near where the beltline was going to be built.

The bike tour follows completed and proposed sections of the BeltLine, primarily on adjacent neighborhood streets, and offers three route options catering to all abilities. Riders will gather at the start location at the Grady High School parking lot on 8th St. near Piedmont Park beginning at noon and leave at 1 pm. All route options loop back to the start. Links to routes (from 3 to 28 miles).

Route Options:

 

Each route is punctuated with educational stops where participants will learn about BeltLine developments and local history, and the projects potential impact on the city. The tour is supported with healthy snacks provided at the start and water refills along the way. All routes are led by skilled cyclists and each route will have one SAG vehicle to pick up riders if needed.

Additionally, members of the Atlanta Police Departments motorcycle unit will provide a rolling road closure for the ride start, the Short & Sweet, and the Half BeltLine options.

Cost: This ride is a fundraiser to support the programs and activities of the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. $20 per Adult What a great ride to see where the BeltLine is going to be Intown Atlanta.
