The Espresso Ride will be a tour of Atlanta's best coffee shops combined with a solid 40 mile ride through Atlanta's most interesting neighborhoods.
We will start at Chrome Yellow Trading Company in Old Fourth Ward. From there we will ride Downtown and then head northwest into the heart of Buckhead passing many beautiful homes on our way to the Atlanta History Center, home to the new Brash Coffee and Souper Jenny (mile 18).
The next leg of the ride will go north on Peachtree Rd through Buckhead and Brookhaven to Chamblee where we will turn right on Clairmont Road to the Toco Hill Shopping Center, home to the infamous Spiller Park Coffee (mile 30). For a treat you won't regret, check out the Toast w Avocado, a Big Boy Muffin or an iced Cola Cocktail. The next leg of this ride will venture through Emory University, Druid Hills, Candler Park, Edgewood and Kirkwood finishing at Taproom Coffee (mile 38) in downtown Kirkwood, where one will have earned a draft beer or wine in addition to coffee.
From there it's a short ,straight 2 miles to the finish at The Spindle ATL (mile 40), where The Spindleros will have a special recovery beverage on draft for us. And we'll be there just in time for the Bicycle Yard Sale!
NOTE: This is a 40 mile ride all over Atlanta. AKA - This ride is not easy peasy.
