About the Event

We know that MARTA is the best way to get from the airport, but have you tried biking to it? In honor of the 50th anniversary of Mayor Maynard Jackson establishing the Neighborhood Planning Unit (NPU) system, this ride will roll out from College Park MARTA to the Phoenix Trail, adjacent to the world’s busiest airport before heading north to Maynard Jackson High School.

Riders who want to participate but aren’t sure about doing the full distance will have the option to return to College Park MARTA after riding the Phoenix Trail (~5-mile option)
