Meet in front of the Decatur Recreation Center and be ready to roll at 6 pm for this 5-6 mile ride around Decatur neighborhoods. After the ride we will visit a local watering hole for refreshment and fun.

This is a slow-paced social, no-drop ride. Riders should be familiar with how to use their gears and be able to ride up small hills. It’s Georgia and hard to avoid them!
