Don’t let the Coronavirus keep you from getting some exercise! Our first ever “Do It Yourzelf Zen Ride” will start June 5 – and continue on the first and third Fridays of every month. Start out on the Greenway (bike, run, walk, skate) from Marconi Drive trailhead, and then end with adult beverages at Jekyll Brewing Taproom (also near the Marconi Drive trailhead). Ride solo or with family after work — the Taproom is open from 4 pm to 10 pm on Fridays. Note that Taproom has outdoor seating, and interior seating is available again. Please patronize Jekyll Brewing as they are a highly valued sponsor of Bike Alpharetta!

Here is an update on the extension of the Big Creek Greenway up to Forsyth County. It’s one of the most anticipated pedestrian and cycling projects in our area. The Alpharetta portion is due to be complete by end of 2021!

The City of Alpharetta is working to extend the Big Creek Greenway north from the Marconi Drive trailhead along Windward Parkway to connect to the Forsyth County line along McGinnis Ferry Road. This project includes construction of one pedestrian/cycling bridge, new concrete trail and a pedestrian/cyclist culvert under Windward Pkwy. When the full project is completed by Alpharetta and Forsyth County, it will result in a trail system that runs more than 14 miles through Roswell, Alpharetta, and Forsyth County. Ultimately the trail system will span from the Chattahoochee River in Roswell to Bethelview Road in Forsyth County.

They are essential businesses to keep us rolling along – commute, run errands, stretch our minds/legs, visit loved ones and elderly friends.

Start by checking out a local bike shop via Facebook:

Exciting Plans for Webb Bridge Rd

The City unveiled plans for the Webb Bridge project at a well attended meeting October 15, 2019. We are really pleased that the City listened and was able to incorporate many suggestions from the community (including cyclists). The design will be posted soon on the City’s website, but we wanted to share some of the key elements:

– 8′ sidewalks and 4′ bike lanes
– access to the Greenway for cyclists traveling West
– a roundabout at Webb Bridge Way

Along with the Alpha-Loop and North Point District, as well as numerous other projects, walking and biking will keep getting more connected, safer, and better in Alpharetta!
