On the 2nd Friday of each month is the Mobile Social. Yes, the skies opened up and we all got soaked this last time. But that didn’t stop a bar full of people from ending in Kirkwood.

The Mobile Social is also preparing for their big event that benefits the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. Join us on Saturday October 4th.

9am on Sunday morning, our friends ATLX (Atlanta Cross) hosted a cyclocross practice. It was time to get the cobwebs off the bikes and start practicing those long dormant cyclocross skills.

Next practice is this Sunday 9am in Conyers at the International Horse Park.

Join us, we have cyclocross loaner bikes to lend.
