Atlanta’s bike revolution is happening and we’re glad you’re part of it. We’ve been listening to you all and we’ve learned that you’d be riding even more if two things happened – 1) the city ramps up its infrastructure so that it’s roads are safe for bicycle riding and 2) you felt more empowered to negotiated the current and evolving conditions of Atlanta’s streets.
Your ride leader, Stephen Spring, has been car-less taking on the streets of DC, SF, Austin, and Atlanta by bicycle for three decades. This ride is guaranteed to lift your urban bike riding confidence. We will mass up, do a few quick drills along the beltline, then hit the city streets for an hour-long ride through O4W, Downtown, and into Midtown. 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.”
At the end of class, there’s an option to gather and debrief at a watering hole.
October 20th, 6:00-7:30pm (the last half hour will be at night, so bring lights. We’ll have blinkie lights for those who need them.)
October 22nd, 2:00-3:30pm
Location: Outside Krog Street Market at Krog and Irwin Streets.
