I still can’t believe I get to work here

I pinch myself every time I ride into this space (such as yesterday) and can’t believe I get to work here. It’s a circa-1906 cotton holding facility converted into live/work lofts in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of the City of Atlanta, right next to the Atlanta Beltline.

If I hadn’t paused to take this photo . . .

So yesterday in the sudden quiet after the international bike tour guests left and we had closed up shop, I took this photo of Attica in the old cotton-holding facility where Bicycle Tours of Atlanta is located and then rode her back to catch the MARTA train to come home. It was later than expected…
