Trees Atlanta and the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition presents a “Tree Tour on Bikes”, led by ISA Certified Arborist Linc Weis and experienced ride leaders from ABC. The tour will take place on Sunday April 27 from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM.
This family-oriented ride visits the Virginia-Highland Neighborhood Arboretum along quiet neighborhood streets as well as a stretch of the Eastside Trail of the Atlanta BeltLine while showcasing diverse ornamental and flowering trees. This easy ride has options for 2 or 4 miles of touring and can be managed by most elementary school children. Younger children and cyclists who have yet to develop street skills are welcome as passengers in bike seats and trailers driven by adults. Frequent stops and interesting stories accommodate all ages. Feel free to bring your own refreshments and refillable water bottle for a water stop at John Howell Park. Also, join the group for an optional lunch stop afterward at a favorite Virginia-Highland restaurant.
Meet at John Howell Park at 9:30 AM for a 10:00 AM departure. Arriving at 9:30 will allow organizers to sign you in, check equipment and brief riders on the route and safety rules. Whereas light mechanical problems can be handled by our ride leaders, our tour will be more pleasant if your bike arrives in good working order. Participants are expected to wear helmets. You are encouraged to bring a bike with gears as Atlanta can be hilly at times.
Participants are asked to pre-register for the event so organizers know how many riders to expect. Register at: http://treesatlanta.givezooks.com/events/tour-de-trees-biking-tree-tour-of-virginia-highland.
