Calling All Dunwoody Cyclists for
Georgia Rides to the Capitol

Tuesday, March 27, 2012


Don’t miss the 7th Annual Georgia Rides to the Capitol event. Show your state officials that you care about bicycling! The Dunwoody group will depart at 9:45 AM on a police-escorted route along Mt. Vernon Rd and will link up with Roswell riders on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs. We’ll travel at a leisurely 12 mile per hour pace, but novice riders and families may want to join the five-mile group ride leaving from East Lake MARTA Rail Station in Decatur with Mayor Bill Floyd. There are many other starting times and locations throughout the metro area including Roswell, East Cobb, and more, so please see the event website for details. Please note that return routes from the capitol will not be police-escorted. Meet the Dunwoody group at 9:30 AM at the Fresh Market at Dunwoody Village (5515 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd, Dunwoody, GA). Remember to pre-register at the website!
Why is it essential for Georgia government officials to support safe cycling, on-road bike facilities, and more multi-use trails?
