Tour de Dunwoody Bike Event

WHAT:
A wave of bikes will take over the roads of Dunwoody for the 2nd annual Tour de Dunwoody bike event on Saturday, October 20.  Organizers, Christine Hilgert and Sean Penn have once again expertly coordinated the Dunwoody Elementary    School‘s fall event for an expected 250 riders from the Dunwoody community by working with the Dunwoody Police Department to make sure the participants had an organized and safe ride throughout the Dunwoody streets.  The 3 mile family fun ride will leave from Dunwoody Elementary School, travel down Tilly Mill to Peeler then back to the school through the Village Mill neighborhood.  The younger participants are able to enjoy a “tot trike ride” – a short bike ride through the Dunwoody Elementary parking lot.
Following the bicycle ride, all attendees will be able to have their bikes serviced by REI, bike decorating, face painting, enjoy an inflatable or two and partake in smoothies from The Smoothie Lady (for small fee). The following businesses provided goods and services or donations for this inaugural event:   Dr. Jason Kaplan Orthodontics. Kumon, Dental Implants and Aesthetic Specialists of Atlanta, Primrose Schools, RMZ Properties, Chandler et al Attorneys at Law, Griffith Engineering, and Jodi Halpert - Prudential Georgia Realty. 
This event will be fun for the whole family and will be a great way for the Dunwoody community to enjoy a bike ride together. Sign up to join us by going to the Dunwoody Elementary School PTO website at www.dunwoodypto.com.  
“This year’s Tour de Dunwoody will surely have something for everyone in the whole family,” said Hilgert. “Get your bikes ready and plan to join us for a great family outing.”
