“I Bike Decatur” Ride Tonight

Join Bicycle South and the Southern Bicycle League as they team up to form the first ride of the “I BIKE Decatur” chapter/branch of the Southern Bicycle League. Designed with minimal hills and stops, this is really a great cruising kind of ride.

The first mile is the Paul Taylor remembrance section. This ride has tremendous character and rolls through the roundabout at Emory Village to Lullwater; To Oakdale, Cabbagetown and Flat Shoals; Onto Oakview thru Oakhurst to S Mc Donough; PATH to S Candler/Arcadia; Over to Avondale along Lakeshore; Clarendon to Larado to PATH back to Sams Crossing. Onto E Ponce for one block, then Sycamore Dr, Forkner and through the Medlock neighborhood. This ride is 20 miles and no drop. A shorter option is available of 15 miles depending on the number of participants that would like to ride this option.

Celebrate the Last Day of National Bike Month

An invitation to the community from Alison Amyx at Georgia Interfaith Power & Light:

“Join Georgia Interfaith Power & Light (GIPL) as we celebrate  National Bike Month at our Bike for Breakfast event on May 31.

When: Thursday, May 31, 7:30 – 10 a.m.
Where: First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
601 West Ponce de Leon
Decatur, GA 30030

This event will take place in the church parking lot. We’ll provide coffee, pastries, and give-aways. Bicycle South is setting up a mobile bike repair tent for participants.

We’ll also announce the results of our Bike Month Challenge. Kate, our Director of Congregational Support, has been biking to work since she joined our staff in January, and she has challenged the rest of the staff and GIPL supporters to do the same. Biking to work reflects our commitment as people of faith to care for creation. It saves precious energy and helps us get outside to enjoy Creation!

Even if you don’t ride your bike, we hope you’ll stop by on May 31 to celebrate .

Co-sponsored by First Christian Church of Decatur, Bicycle South, Pure Knead, and Pastries A Go Go. “
