For the past 3 years, REI has been a pivotal sponsor of the Atlanta Cycling Festival. They've made far fetched ideas a reality (Remember when we launched a MTB course on a parking deck in 2016?) and been an incredible partner to help make each ACF the best it can be.
Not only that, but they've helped drastically increase and maintain Atlanta's MTB trails, awarded grants to incredible nonprofits (Park Pride, Georgia Conservancy, the Georgia Appalachian Trail Club and many others), sponsored Atlanta Streets Alive and now, from a corporate level, are initiating a robust sustainability standard for all their brands.
So! We're excited to announce that we're taking riders to their latest Georgia adventure: The REI Boathouse.
Wait - REI Has A Boathouse?
You bet! Based in Stone Mountain, GA, the REI Boathouse opened it's doors to paddlers of all types a little over a year ago.
And we're going to take you there at the first ever Pedal, Pint & Paddle To The REI Boathouse on Sunday, May 20th during ACF 2018.
Imagine a day of biking, ice-cold Eventide Beer and an afternoon on the water (#SUPlife)! We'll have food, music and all sorts of awesome bike vendors. What better way to enjoy your Sunday?
