TourDeLanta (http://www.tourdelanta.com) is an active group of Mountain, Hybrid and off-road bicyclers who ride various urban single-track loops around Atlanta during the week and maintain and ride MTB Atlanta bike trails on the weekends.
The TourDeLanta weekday ride is part bike lane, part urban single-track loop around Atlanta. The riders skill level ranges from intermediate, to advanced. The group meets in front of Earl's Bike Shop and traverses miles of "Beltline trails", "The Path" trails, "urban single-track", off road, as well as bike lanes and sidewalks when necessary. This ride will take us through most of the big name parks and popular regions in Atlanta including Piedmont Park, West Midtown Betline, Virginia Highlands, Centennial park, Woodruff park, Krog Street Bridge, hidden Atlanta trails (Shhhhh!). We also host theme costume rides. FUN FUN!
Why Mt. bikes, hybrid and off-road bike tires?
These bicycles offer more terrain choices for any terrain we ride in in the city. We ride urban single-track, paved paths, sidewalks, open natural terrain, walls, jumps, drainage culverts etc. Mt Bikes also provide a more dynamic workout in a shorter distance. Our average ride burns close to 1000 calories. The ride ranges from high rep low resistance to low rep high resistance.
