Saturday's Bike Ride Around Dunwoody has extended early registration thru this evening.

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 community, and help preserve the Chestnut Farm. 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!

Ride Options
Family Route on the Jim Benson Bike Trail: 8 Miles
This police-supported route is the same we took last year and follows the green painted markers.
