The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership recently announced the addition of two new tours to its free bike tour program, presented by Northside Hospital. Both tours highlight the newly opened 4-mile Southside Interim Trail which connects the southern ends of the existing Eastside and Westside trails to each other.

The ABC-to-Lee + White Tour is the shorter tour and starts at the Atlanta BeltLine Center (just south of Irwin Street on the Eastside Trail).

Those interested in a longer ride that showcases more of the Atlanta BeltLine, can opt for the Ansley Park-to-Washington Park Tour. It starts on the Northeast Interim Trail, just north of Piedmont Ave. Parking is available in the back of the Ansley Square Shopping Center parking lot where there’s an opening to the trail.

Each of these new tours will be offered twice before the end of the 2019 tour season.

The ABC-to-Lee + White Tour (short tour) will be offered 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 14 and Saturday, Oct. 19. The tour should return to the center by 2 p.m. (including the stop at Boxcar).

The Ansley Park-to-Washington Park Tour (long tour) will be offered 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 28 and Saturday, Nov. 9. The tour should reach Washington Park no later than 2 p.m.

Tours will be capped at 25 participants each.
