Weekend Bike Happenings

If there’s one thing we love about Atlanta, there’s always plenty of things going on.  Everywhere you turn there’s festivals, events, art, concerts, sports, literature, history and everything in between.

Especially in a town that might not seem very bike-friendly to the outsider, there’s almost always something bike related to do.  This weekend is particularly jam-packed with bike events for everyone.

Friday, August 14
The Mobile Social, 7 p.m., Woodruff Park
Join the monthly casual, no-drop ride.  This month’s ride is themed around Business+Bikes.  Click here for more information about the ride. 

Saturday, August 15
EAV Criterium
Why should you care about this race?  Crits are fun to watch because they’re short and fast, but it makes it all worth the while when it’s in a cool place.  East Atlanta Village is easily reachable by bike and there’s plenty of local eateries that cater to cyclists.  Probably the best thing about this race though is the FREE community race wedged in between the pro races.  More information here.

Sunday, August 16
Little Bellas and Prissy Tomboy Mountain Bike Clinic for Girls
4-6 p.m., Blankets Creek MTB Trails, Woodstock

Little Bellas, a nonprofit building confidence for girls ages 7-14, is starting a new chapter in Georgia.  Join them on Sunday to get a taste of what mountain biking is all about at their FREE clinic.  More information here.

Grant Park Criterium
It’s a classic.  It’s in our backyard.  It’s super fun.
