TourDeLanta is an active group of Mountain, Hybrid and off-road bicyclers who ride various urban terrain loops around Atlanta during the week and ride Mt. bike trails all over Georgia on the weekends. Our Group volunteers time and financial support to bicycle groups such as SORBA Atlanta, I.M.B.A., Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, Morebikelanes.com as well as host joint rides with local interests such as the Mobile Social Ride, Wheel-Hoppers, Faster Mustache rides, and Atlanta streets Alive.
The TourDeLanta weekday ride is an off / on road loop around Atlanta. The riders skill level ranges from beginner, intermediate, to advanced. The group meets in front of "The Whelan" pub and traverses miles of "Belt-line trails", "The Path" trails, "urban single track", off road, as well as roads 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, Virginia Highlands, Atlantic station, Centennial park.
Why Mt. bicycles, hybrids and off-road bikes?
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.
