Jails, Trash and McAfee - ABC Training Ride - Sunday, Feb. 26
ABC's training ride this month is our newest route, taking you on a tour through the neighborhoods north of Emory, and then East Lake, Lakewood, and Grant Park.
We'll 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: From The Varsity at North Avenue and I-75/85, travel east on North Avenue for 2.1 miles. Make a right on North Highland Avenue, then a right into the parking for Manuel's Tavern. Please park away from Manuel's itself.
Riding directions from downtown Decatur: The map below shows a route from the Square west on W Ponce de Leon.
Transit: Closest MARTA station is Inman Park - exit station on the North side, then proceed right on Hurt Street. At intersection with Euclid, follow the PATH north, then right at the PATH intersection. At North Highland, turn left and ride start is immediately on the left. Map below.
Ride Sunday Feb. 26 at 10 am, then plan on staying on for post-ride bike talk and brunch at Manuel's Tavern.
This no-drop ride has an A and B group.
