Description

A mix of city riding with great neighborhood riding that takes advantage of roads with bike lanes and the PATH system. Challenging at times, easy at others, it's definitely not boring and you get to go through at least 10 distinct neighborhoods, focusing on the eastern side of town.

Starting at the Bike shop, you go through Piedmont Park, Midtown, Inman Park, right through Little 5 Points into Candler Park. At Dekalb Avenue, you go across Dekalb and onto the sidewalk, which is the PATH trail to Stone Mountain.
Take this up to S. McDonough St. and go by Agnes Scott college and then into the heart of Oakhurst. Oakview Rd is a great ride with only one stop sign I think after you pass East Lake. Hosea Williams takes you up some tough hills and through the heart of Kirkwood. Stop at Gathering Grounds for some java. Then the ride twists back up to McClendon, and you double back maybe a few blocks and take Clifton for a while. Cross Ponce and begin the Ferbank-Emory route. Go past a nice little golf course, and up perhaps the busiest road you'll ride on, N. Decatur Rd. Don't worry, the roads are wide here. Quick left on Briarcliff and take your first right on University. Some nice downhill and then steep uphill there. Sharp left on Lanier. Stay to the right. Great ride here, no stops until Virginia. From there, you just go back to the bike shop via Virginia!

Great, but discontinuous


Beautiful, gorgeous neighborhoods, with a nice variety of scenery and terrain.

I think rides should have considerably fewer stop lights. It was really hard to get in cadence.

Great way to loop together some of Atlanta's most interesting places


Nice choice of roads that minimize traffic, as well as provide great scenery along the way!
