    • Oakland City MARTA Station

    NOTE TO BIKERS

    Earlier this year, I led two series of sub-area walking tours around the Atlanta Beltline corridor (20 tours total). I learned a lot and there is a ton of cool stuff to see when you really get into the 45 neighborhoods that are inside the planning area. The problem was that the walks were a little long. That is why I decided to offer this series of (10) weekly sub-area bike tours. If you are an experienced rider and you want to really get to know the Beltline neighborhoods as well as the proposed development plans for these areas, please join me. If you are not a member, please consider joining Urban Explorers of Atlanta as you will save a lot of money. Hope to see you on the road. ~ Steve Saenz, Tour Guide

    ABOUT THIS TOUR

    This guided tour begins at the Oakland City MARTA station and ends at the West End MARTA station. The entire tour will focus on Sub-area 1 of the Atlanta Beltline Master Planning Area, which includes most of the new Westside Trail. There will be an optional get-together after the tour (location TBD).

    Subarea 1 starts in Atlanta’s historic West End at the intersection of I-20 and Langhorn Street where the corridor passes under the highway. From I-20, the Atlanta BeltLine runs south to the west of Muse Street, passes underneath Ralph David Abernathy at the intersections of Cascade and White Street (by the Kroger City Center), and along White Street all the way to Lee Street. 

    Sub-area 1 includes the neighborhoods of Oakland City, West End and Westview neighborhoods. It also includes Gordon White Park, Enota Park, Rose Circle Park and Westview Cemetery.

    ABOUT RYAN GRAVEL

    Ryan Gravel, AICP, LEED AP, is an urban planner, designer, and author working on site design, infrastructure, concept development, and public policy as the founding principal at Sixpitch. His master’s thesis in 1999 was the original vision for the Atlanta Beltline, a 22-mile transit greenway that with fifteen years of progress, is changing both the physical form of his city and the decisions people make about living there. Now a $4 billion public-private investment in the early stages of implementation, the project’s health and economic benefits are already evident through record-breaking use of its first section of mainline trail and $3.1 billion of private sector redevelopment since 2005.

    Ryan has received numerous awards and press related to his work on the Atlanta Beltline and tells his story internationally, but an essential aspect of his work is yet to come. Alongside project work at Sixpitch and research on similar “catalyst infrastructure” projects around the world, he makes a compelling case about what this movement means and why it matters. In his book, “Where We Want to Live,” (St. Martin’s Press, 2016), Ryan investigates the cultural side of infrastructure, describing how its intimate relationship with our way of life can illuminate a brighter path forward for cities.

    NOTE TO BIKERS

    Earlier this year, I led two series of sub-area walking tours around the Atlanta Beltline corridor (20 tours total). I learned a lot and there is a ton of cool stuff to see when you really get into the 45 neighborhoods that are inside the planning area. The problem was that the walks were a little long. That is why I decided to offer this series of (10) weekly sub-area bike tours. If you are an experienced rider and you want to really get to know the Beltline neighborhoods as well as the proposed development plans for these areas, please join me. If you are not a member, please consider joining Urban Explorers of Atlanta as you will save a lot of money. Hope to see you on the road. ~ Steve Saenz, Tour Guide

    ABOUT THIS TOUR

    This tour begins in front of the old Cycolrama (Zoo Atlanta) in Grant Park and ends in Glenwood Park. There will be an optional post-hike get-together after the ride (location TBD). The entire tour will focus on Sub-area 3.

    From Hill Street where Subarea 2 leaves off, the Atlanta BeltLine corridor bisects Subarea 3 just north of Englewood and crosses Boulevard Avenue, Confederate Avenue, and over the arched, brick bridge soaring over Ormewood Avenue almost up to Glenwood Avenue.

    Subarea 3 neighborhoods are: Beulah Heights, Boulevard Heights, Chosewood Park, Englewood Manor, Grant Park, and Ormewood Park. Highlights of Subarea 3 include Boulevard Crossing Park, Grant Park (and its associated restaurant area), Zoo Atlanta and stately Victorian homes.

    SUB-AREA TOURS 

    Our "sub-area" tours are for those who want to get to know the 45 Beltline neighborhoods better. The series consists of 10 different tours that correspond to the ten Atlanta Beltline Planning sub areas

    These guided tours are 8-12 miles in length (mostly flat) and last about three hours. We generally start and stop at a MARTA transit station. We also stop along the way to observe and discuss the neighborhoods we are riding through. Most tours include a picnic lunch at a park or similar location.

    IMPORTANT

    These rides are not suitable for beginning bikers or individuals who have not ridden in a long time. They are for riders who are comfortable and confident riding long distances and in traffic.

    PLEASE NOTE: This event has been rescheduled to Nov 11. If you like architecture, history and amazing photo ops this tour is for you! You might call it a religious experience...

    This guided tour* was inspired by an article that appeared in Curbed Atlanta in December 2016 entitled, Atlanta's Gorgeous Intown Historic Churches, Mapped!   We divided the original route into two parts: North & South. This particular tour will focus on the northern portion, which begins at the Amtrack (Peachtree) Station and ends at North Avenue. There is an optional brunch before the tour and optional get-together after the tour. The southern portion tour begins at North Avenue and ends at the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, which is near the state capitol in downtown.

    PLEASE NOTE: While will gain some historical insights about the churches, this is not a history tour, per se.  Also, please keep in mind that most, if not all, of these churches have services on Sundays so we will probably not be able to access the inside of the churches. The photo gallery below will give you a very good idea of what you can expect to see on this tour. 

    NON-MEMBERS: If you would like to save some money please consider joining before you register for this tour.

    After the Atlanta BeltLine crosses highway 75, it dips south towards Atlantic Station and the Atlanta Waterworks and ends at the Marietta Street artery. Subarea 8 includes Atlantic Station and West Midtown, both hotspots for a live-work-play lifestyle. Other neighborhoods are Berkeley Park, Blandtown, Channing Valley, Home Park, Loring Heights, and the Marietta Street artery.

    SUB-AREA TOURS 

    Our "sub-area" tours are for those who want to get to know the 45 Beltline neighborhoods better. The series consists of 10 different tours that correspond to the ten Atlanta Beltline Planning sub areas

    These guided tours are 8-12 miles in length (mostly flat) and last about three hours. We generally start and stop at a MARTA transit station. We also stop along the way to observe and discuss the neighborhoods we are riding through. Most tours include a picnic lunch at a park or similar location.

    IMPORTANT

    These rides are not suitable for beginning bikers or individuals who have not ridden in a long time. They are for riders who are comfortable and confident riding long distances and in traffic.

    NOTE TO BIKERS

    Earlier this year, I led two series of sub-area walking tours around the Atlanta Beltline corridor (20 tours total). I learned a lot and there is a ton of cool stuff to see when you really get into the 45 neighborhoods that are inside the planning area. The problem was that the walks were a little long. That is why I decided to offer this series of (10) weekly sub-area bike tours. If you are an experienced rider and you want to really get to know the Beltline neighborhoods as well as the proposed development plans for these areas, please join me. If you are not a member, please consider joining Urban Explorers of Atlanta as you will save a lot of money. Hope to see you on the road. ~ Steve Saenz, Tour Guide
