Biketober is Atlanta’s annual fall celebration of all things bike-related. It’s a fun, free competition that encourages all Atlantans to experience the joy of riding a bike. If you’d like to hit the trails this Biketober but need something that works with your schedule, why not take a self-guided bike tour of the Atlanta BeltLine? The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership has created self-guided tours of the Westside and Eastside Trails, modeled after the free public bike tours they give on Saturday mornings that are currently sold out for the remainder of the 2021 season. Use these self-guided tours to get out there and log your Biketober miles while you enjoy these two popular trails.
The Westside Trail is 3 miles long, running from Washington Park at the north end to University Ave., where it connects with the Southside Trail. On this self-guided tour, you’ll experience the entire Westside Trail, the recently-opened paved section of the Southside Trail, and a few of the historic neighborhoods both trails pass through.
The Eastside Trail is 3.5 miles long, running from Monroe Dr. at the north end to Memorial Dr. in Reynoldstown, with many fascinating points of interest and amazing art installations along the way. On this self-guided tour, check out what the Eastside has to offer from peaceful urban parks like Historic Fourth Ward Park to bustling developments like Ponce City Market and Krog Street Market.
Thanks to Northside Hospital for their generous support of the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership’s bike tour program.
