Please note this is not a group ride and the starting time is only due to the website requiring one. In an effort to keep people safe there are no group rides during the Virtual Festival
Healthcare workers all over America and the world are nothing short of heroes right now. They are among those at the forefront of fighting this pandemic and there really isn't enough we can do to thank them.
This route takes you past all the hospitals within the Perimeter! This is a challenging ride over some pretty tough streets. It covers all the ITP general and childrens' hospitals, from downtown, to Pill Hill, out east to Emory and Decatur, and then south to Wellstar Atlanta Medical Center South. Stop at one or all to get a pic and tag with #ACF2020 #HealthcareHeroes.
