Jails, Trash and McAfee - ABC Training Ride

Jails RideABC's training ride this month is hosted by the Kirkwood Sunday Ride (facebook page).  Instead of our usual start at Manuel's Tavern, we'll be meeting at Le Petite Marche in the Kirkwood Neighborhood (maps below).

We'll still ride past multiple incarceration facilities, a landfill, and along the little known McAfee Road. Of the three, only McAfee poses a threat to you – with 6 steep hills packed into a straight-as-an-arrow 3.3 mile stretch. This ride has some great lightly-traveled sections of road, yet never ventures outside of I-285.

Driving directions:  East on I-20, exit left on Maynard Terrace, right on Memorial, then left on Howard. 

Ride starts at corner of Howard and Hosea Williams.

Riding directions from downtown Decatur:  ride south on N. McDonough, right on Oakview, right on Hosea Williams into Kirkwood retail district.  Start is across Howard from the BP station. 

Transit: Closest MARTA stations are Candler Park and East Lake - transit directions. (Enter the address "1963 Hosea L. Williams Dr., Atlanta GA 30317" into the destination field).

Ride at 9 am, then plan on staying on for post-ride bike talk and brunch at Le Petite Marche.  Order off the menu, or take advantage of the "Cyclist Special" -- served by our own volunteers!.

This no-drop ride has an A and B group.
