Routes

Wanna ride your bike in Metro Atlanta but not sure where to go beyond endless circles in your local park or the too-crowded Atlanta Beltline’s Eastside Trail? Here are thirteen Traveling at the Speed of Bike tours (a Baker’s dozen!) I’ve created for you as a PeopleForBikes Ambassador. And, yes there are more to come.*

The self-guided tours are specifically designed to be welcoming and low-stress (based on traffic patterns and available infrastructure). They are as short as one mile (less, actually) and as long as ten miles (with most between two and six miles). I’ve also tried to limit the hills as much as possible, but Metro Atlanta is hilly so riding a bike with gears is recommended. For additional comfort, see my free classes and bonus resources for basic bike skills tips. 

You can click the individual links below, or  click on my smiley face here and then click the Classics tab and it will take you to all of them. You get route details, cue cards, photos, and more. Even if you don’t or can’t ride, you may enjoy a virtual pedal or two just by checking it all out. (If you live elsewhere, check out your local PeopleForBikes Ambassador’s routes, or consider creating routes of your own!)
