Since it's getting darker earlier and earlier, we have decided to move our weekly Social Ride to Sundays. Meet at the trailhead any time between 3 and 5 p.m. If you don't see us at the trailhead, wait a few minutes and you can catch us on the next lap. This trail and ride is kid and beginner friendly.

It sounds too absurd to be true but it is. HB 689 has been proposed in the Georgia House of Representatives, which would:
- Require tags and registration for bicycles,
- Remove the right to ride two abreast,
- Require new spacing requirements for group rides (no more than 4 riders per single-file line, 4 feet between each bicycle, 50 feet between each line of 4 cyclists), and
- Declare certain unrestricted public roadways "off limits" to people on bikes.
