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 activity in Atlanta .
The tour will take you through the evolving scenes of Atlanta-industrial buildings from the beginning of the 20th century, now renovated as cool condos and parks. Guests will explore art along Atlanta’s Beltline as well as beautiful 19th century neighborhoods that changed their character and residents' nature with time.
