GA Sierra Club Outings: The latest chapter outings news


{Other Trips} Jul-27-2014: Ride the Silver Comet!!!

Join us for a leisurely ride east from the Silver Comet Depot past Mile Marker 0 to the Silver Comet Extension and on to South City Kitchen restaurant in Smyrna. We will arrive at the South City Kitchen in time for brunch after which we will return to the depot. The Silver Comet is a multi-use trail constructed on an old rail bed and is mostly flat. Our riding speed will be in the 8-to-10 mph range (easy). We will meet at the Silver Comet Depot (4342 Floyd Rd SW, Mableton, GA 30126) at 9:45 AM and leave promptly at 10:00am. As part of the ride Roberta Cook, founder and coordinator of the River Line Historic Area will give a brief talk about the effort to connect the Comet to the Atlanta Beltline, and show us where the connection will be made to the existing trail. This connection will make it possible to take the Freedom Parkway Trail from Stone Mountain to the Beltline over to the Silver Comet to the Alabama state line, then continue on the Chief Ladiga Trail to Anniston Alabama, among other options. In a larger sense this connection will transform the Silver Comet from a recreational trail to a fully functional transportation asset, a truly exciting possibility for many cyclists. It is a chance to enjoy some for fresh air, excellent food and to connect with people doing their part to make Atlanta a cycling friendly city! LEADER: Anderson Mycroft - . Registration Required before July 27, 2014 12:00am. Please register at the GA Sierra Club meetup page.
