In conjunction with Saturday's Beginner / Casual Ride, please help support the First Annual Utoy Festival, a community festival/fundraiser supporting youth mountain biking, organized by Coach Bruce, Coach Jimmy and the Friends of Lionel Hampton-Beecher Park. 

We will depart Peters St. at 9am cycling to "Utoy Fest" at Lionel Hampton-Beecher Park located at 2257 Bollingbrook Dr., Atlanta, Ga. 30311.  We will arrive at L.H-Beecher Park in time to do a 20 mile bike ride with "Utoy Fest" beginning at 10am.  After the 20 mile ride we will escort our "Utoy Fest" friends back to Beecher Park before returning to Peters St., via the Lionel Hampton Trail, to continue to celebrate Nisha's Birthday.  Yaaayyy!!!

Expect 30-35 inner city, beginner pace miles as we continue MACC's Mission of promoting cycling in our community.

True beginners can choose a shorter 18 mile option.

Pre-Beginner Ride departs Peters St. at 7am for an additional 25 miles.  Returning to Peters St. for the 9am ride. Not a beginner option.  (Cedron & Steve) 

Helmets are required on all MACC rides.  By participating in any MACC ride you accept all risks and responsibilities associated with group cycling.  You are ultimately responsible for you own personal safety.

Part of being a good cyclist is having the tools and accessories necessary to be self-sufficient, safe, and ready to ride.  Below is a general list of items to bring and a to-do list to be ready for a MACC ride.
  • Gear Bag:  buy an underseat gear bag and stock it with the basics  – extra tube,tire tools, a small multi-tool, and either a mini-pump or a CO2 cartridge set.
  • Tire Pressure:  pump your tires up before coming to the ride, or bring a floor pump that you can use in the parking lot before the ride.  If you need help, MACCleaders will be there to help you learn.
  • Your bike:  Give it a quick inspection.  Spin the wheels to make sure they aren’t rubbing.  Do the gears shift accurately and easily?  Does everything seem to be in order?
  • Helmet:  Every MACC ride requires every participant to wear an ANSI approved helmet.  MACC ride leaders can help you ensure a correct fit.
  • Hydration/Food: Remember to bring water and maybe an energy snack (bar, gel, banana, etc).
  • Optional items:  The following will make your ride more enjoyable, but aren’t absolutely necessary.  Cycling gloves, sunglasses, cycling shoes and clipless pedals, padded cycling shorts.
  • Be on Time:  MACC rides almost always leave promptly at the advertised time.  Get to the start of the ride with plenty of time to get yourself and your bike ready to roll!
