Bike Ride Around Dunwoody (BRAD) on Saturday April 16th invites the entire community to join in the fun.

Join us for the 3rd annual
BRAD - Bike Ride Around Dunwoody

Saturday April 16, 2011 * Fun for all ages and abilities

As part of Lemonade Days, the Dunwoody Preservation Trust is proud to sponsor the third annual Bike Ride Around Dunwoody, a recreational bike ride for individual riders and families who would like to support Dunwoody becoming a more bicycle-friendly community. Proceeds from this low-cost event will be used to purchase & install bike racks throughout our city. Three different distances covering all abilities with staggered start times means everyone finishes around the same time. Join us after the ride at the starting location in Brook Run for post-ride festivities of food, music and raffles!
