Description

This loop passes by 10 of Atlanta's best (non commercial conglomerate) coffee houses, all of which boast top notch roasts, and great atmosphere. It works well as a leisurely ride, as it features mildly rolling hills. The course winds through quaint, historic neighborhoods around the Highlands and Little 5 Points area, then delves into the urban cityscape, passing by Centennial Olympic Park and Underground Atlanta. Overall, a great route to show your fiends around town...or just to get your daily caffeine buzz.

Coffee Updates


A couple of updates on the coffee shops. Inman Perk has moved around the corner to Highland Ave and Javaology has a new name but is still on the corner of Edgewood and Boulevard.
