Bike Around Decatur This Weekend

DSC00300There are opportunities to bike in and to Decatur this weekend.

On Saturday morning, Decatur Bikes will lead a no-drop ride to Stone Mountain at 8 am. Meet in the CVS parking lot across from the store and be ready to hit the pavement at 8 am. Wear your helmet!

Bike on over to the Decatur Book Festival and have your bike registered by the Decatur Police Department on Saturday, from 10 am until noon. The registration will be set up next to the Bike Valet on North McDonough.

Which leads to mentioning the Bike Valet that will be offered both Saturday and Sunday, so bike on over to the festival and park your bike safely for free.

Teen cooking class graduates at Ebster Recreation!

The Ebster teen cooking class sponsored by Cooking Matters-Open Hands came to an end last night. There were 10 girls to graduate from the program. This 6 week program focused on meal preparation, grocery shopping, food budgeting and nutrition.  Teen participants took home a bag of groceries at the end of each class. Classes were taught by a volunteer chef and nutrition educator. Cooking Matters has been featured by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! campaign and recognized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for excellence in nutrition education. Ebster girls truly enjoyed this class and are thankful to be a part of the Cooking Matters community.

Let’s Bike Decatur! Friday, August 21…….

Let’s Bike Decatur! This Friday, August 21 at 6:30 pm join Decatur Active Living for a fun, social and slow paced ride around historic/scenic Decatur. We will ride 5-6 miles and enjoy refreshments after the ride at one of Decatur’s watering holes. Make new friends and have fun riding around the City.

Meet in front of the Decatur Recreation Center at 6:30 pm. We share the parking deck behind the Library, so there is plenty of parking if you are driving over. Fill up your tires and make minor adjustments with the Dero bike repair station out front.

No ride if raining…check back here to see if the ride is cancelled due to inclement weather. Helmets are required, and bring water to drink!

Hope to see you on Friday!
