Rides

With COVID-19 please check with the club, bike shop, or group to make sure rides are happening. I have done my best to only list rides that are currently going on as of May 2022.

A note about Zwift rides. This is not a resource for Zwift or virtual/e-rides, only in person rides. Please check with your favorite Zwift group on social media for rides and races. There are too many groups to list here.

Atlanta Area Group Road Rides
These rides are put on by various organizations and bike shops around the greater metro Atlanta area. Some rides do not have a leader and are “pick up rides.” Contact the ride leader/shop/club to verify that the ride is still going on. Unless specified, these are hard training rides geared towards advanced riders and racers and those that have group riding experience. Aerobars or tri-bikes are not allowed on group rides. If you have them, do NOT ride in them in the group. Expect to be dropped and be on your own if you cannot keep up with the group. Athens rides can be found at Athens GA Bicycling. Cycling is a dangerous sport. Southeastern Cycling, Trish Albert, and the sponsoring ride groups are not responsible if you get lost or hurt on these rides. You ride at your own risk and assume all responsibility for yourself and your equipment. All ride times given are Daylight Saving Time unless noted. Many rides stop after Daylight Savings Time ends. Check with the sponsoring organization for specifics about any rides. Please note that all times are PM (afternoon/evening) unless otherwise stated
. The page is updated at the beginning of every Daylight Saving Time and throughout the year as we are made aware of ride changes. Most shops/groups have the GPS files available on their websites. Since ride routes change often, I am no longer posting these. For 2022, On Hold indicates that the ride is not happening until further notice. Please check with your health professional before beginning cycling.

Spring 2022

ATL PTN RIdes
Nasty Northlake Tuesdays will be nasty once again. The always vicious Nasty Northlake (NNL) returns to its roots with the official start moved back to the eponymous Northlake location. Sometimes the old ways are the best. Here’s the Google Maps link to said location. The Northlake start rolls at 6:00pm but many who either live closer to Stone Mountain and/or those scurred of climbing Midvale at mach 1 congregate at the car was just outside of the Stone Mountain park entrance at around 6:30pm-6700-6672 James B Rivers Memorial Dr.

Beginning Saturday, April 2nd: Tucker A rolls at 9:00am with Tucker B rolling at 9:05am. Let the gnashing of teeth commence but…this structure allows for those riders on the cusp of becoming A riders to try their hand (once truly ready) and, if dropped, get scooped up by B shortly thereafter. TUK A is a no-holds-barred drop ride. TUK B is a challenging but steady ride that is not meant for surging or attacking. Here’s a basic TUK primer: If you struggle to stay on B, don’t start with A. If you are an A-level rider and want to blow B to bits for kicks GTFO.

TUK & Roll On April 3rd, we shift to TUK A @ 8:30am and TUK B @ 8:35am The close but staggered starts received overwhelming support when we tried it in the latter half of 2019 and continues to receive unsolicited requests for its return (Tucker Ride)

Sunday Bloody Sunday The Airport Ride continues on Sundays @ 10:00am through the end of March (last edition March 28th). Thereafter, we hand the baton to the rotating Sunday Ride Schedule and move to 9:00am.
