Are you rethinking your commute? We hear you. People on Bikes are happy; people in cars - not so much. More and more Atlanta residents are discovering the benefits of biking to work, to school, to do errands, or to get to MARTA. You get awesome exercise, you see cool things, you meet great people, you do good for Mother Earth. Basically, supplanting a few car trips with people-powered bicycle trips is just good news all around.
Let us help you hack your way of getting around. A life hack is a tool or technique that makes some aspect of your life easier or more efficient. If you don't have a bike, no problem, the city's got these $10/month bikeshares and our class will start and end at one of them.
This ride is guaranteed to lift your urban bike riding confidence. We will meet up, do a few quick drills, then hit the city streets on a 45-minute ride in and around Atlanta's urban landscape. We’ll take it slow, stay together, and practice our skills in a safe and supportive setting.
You will experience two-directional protected and single-directional bike lanes, sharrows, and streets where we responsibly exercise our legal right to “take the lane.” Your ride leader, Stephen Spring, has been car-free, taking on the streets of DC, SF, Austin, and Atlanta by bicycle for three decades.
Please arrive on time. We strongly recommend you bring a helmet, water, sunscreen, and a friend or three.
