This Weekend's Must-Do: Pedals and Produce

Ready, Set, Go!! With the sun promising to show its face again in Atlanta this weekend, it’s the perfect time to wheel out your bike and have an agricultural adventure with Pedals & Produce!

Georgia Organics, Slow Food Atlanta and the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition have teamed up for a great fall ride to get a first hand (or first-wheel) view of our wonderful local produce markets and gardens. On Saturday, October 17 at 9 a.m., riders will get started at Piedmont Park’s Green Market, followed by a trip over to the Peachtree Road and Morningside Farmers Markets, before returning to Piedmont Park for lunch after the 15 mile roundtrip excursion.

Sunday’s bike trip takes a different route, starting at 9 a.m. from Dunbar Recreation Center. Cyclists will head out on the open road to explore various community gardens, small farms and school gardens in both East & West Atlanta, ending up back at Dunbar after 20 miles of roundtrip veggie sightseeing.

Registration is $15 per person/ per day for Atlanta Bicycle Coalition and Georgia Organics members, or $20 per person/ per day for non-members. Box lunch is included – you’re sure to work up an appetite with all that pedaling and produce perusing! For more details, click here or call 678-702-0400 ext. 205. To register, click here.
