FINAL RIDE Pedal Forward: FTW-Only Ride – October 02, 2023

October 2 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

FTW rides Pedal Forward

Updated start time and location for October – 5:00p meet, 5:30p roll from Cornelia Fort Airpark!

This is the FINAL Pedal Forward of the season!

Join us for our FTW group bicycle ride. Any time is great to ride, of course, but it’s even better when it’s with new bike friends. We will return next April with more scheduled FTW rides!

This ride will center returning and new riders who hope to gain confidence and knowledge about riding a bike. Rides will be between 5-8 miles. No rider left behind. We will traverse streets and greenways.

Ride schedule & details

Meet at the park entrance by the water fountain. 
We will have a short (10 minute) maintenance demo at the beginning of the ride covering basic bike maintenance if folks have questions.
Meet at location 5:00p to mingle/chat; maintenance demo will happen by 5:10p; we will roll out of the location by 5:30p.
Don’t want to mingle or watch demo? Just come by 5:30p to roll out. There is a BCycle station nearby if you need to rent a bike!
In case of predictable inclement weather, the ride will be cancelled. We will post updates on our Twitter feed.

Ride requirements & requests

If you feel sick, stay home!

We ride as a group to support new and returning bicycle riders – no rider left behind. If you are a more experienced bike rider, you are welcome to come and help other FTW riders build their riding confidence and skills!

 

Adhere to all greenway trail etiquette (ride on right, signal when passing, stay under 15MPH, slow down around walkers).
