Join us on a fascinating journey through Atlanta’s civil rights history as we connect the dots from the Antebellum South to the present-day. We’ll share key events leading up to the Civil War, Reconstruction and the subsequent events and how they gave rise to Atlanta’s history-making African-American leaders.
Whether you’re a visitor or a resident, whether you‘re a regular biker or haven’t ridden since you were 10 (Don’t worry, it comes back quick…just like riding a bicycle), you’ll agree that exploring Atlanta from the seat of a bicycle is fun and exhilarating. Founded by Atlanta native and former construction inspector Robyn Elliott who was interested in making a living from her passion for the city and bicycle riding, the company has grown to the top rated outdoor Atlanta activity.
Guest will learn about decisions made by federal and local governments that impacted economic, housing and education outcomes for Atlanta’s citizens. We’ll reflect on the progress we’ve made so far as an American people and as a nation, as we continue to strive for comprehensive social justice for all our citizens. You will hear stories of how these men and women overcame, organized, influenced the white power structure and ultimately laid the foundation for the birth of the modern-day Civil Rights Movement.
Participants will be invited to ask questions and dive into the conversation. You’ll experience Atlanta and “The South” from a fresh perspective while exploring the history, current culture and the destinations that make this great southern city a welcoming place to live, work and play! Guests will be invited to continue the conversation over lunch or dinner at one of the many nearby eateries within walking distance of our shop.
The riding itself is not especially challenging but is designed for people who enjoy an active lifestyle. The tour lasts about 3 hours with stops approximately every 10 minutes. If you are comfortable taking a 1 mile brisk walk, you will enjoy the pace of this bike tour.
