Rise Up & Bike to Work with Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff
Friday, May 17, 2013 from 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM (EDT)
[There's been a mix-up on the start location due to there being 2 Publix on Peachtree St in Buckhead. The larger group is at the "peach" (same start as last year) - 2900 Peachtree St NW. That group will stop by the other Publix (at Peachtree Battle) - 2365 Peachtree St on their way down to the Dome. Sorry for the confusion! ]
