Allez, Allez. Everyone is invited to celebrate Bike Alpharetta’s third anniversary at our annual Tour de France Viewing Party! We’ve selected one of epic climbing stages (4 KOMs with mountaintop finish on Pla d’Adet) to tempt you to come out and eat/drink/talk to your cycling friends. If you feel the need to wear spandex and a helmet on a Wednesday, then come early for a bike ride on the Big Creek Greenway. We are relocating our Wednesday City Ride, “Harry’s Not In A Hurry”, to the Greenway so you can enjoy the Viewing Party aprés bike ride!
