It may take you a while longer to drive along Highway 9 throughout north Fulton County tomorrow.

That's because the Georgia Rides To The Capitol bike ride will kick off tomorrow in Roswell.

The bikers will peel out at 9:45 a.m. at Roswell City Hall and travel the 21-mile route southbound along S.R. 9/Atlanta Street and continue through Sandy Springs, Buckhead, Midtown Atlanta until they make their way to the State Capitol.

The annual event is a partnership with the Metro Atlanta Mayors Association, Georgia Bikes! and other sponsors who participate in the group ride to raise support for the development of a regional bicycling network.

Metro Atlanta mayors slated to participate include:
  • Linda Blechinger, Auburn
  • David Belle Isle, Alpharetta
  • Eric Clarkson, Chamblee
  • Ted Terry, Clarkston
  • Joe Carn (vice mayor), College Park
  • Harvey Persons, Douglasville
  • Denny Shortal (mayor pro tem), Dunwoody
  • Mike Bodker, Johns Creek
  • Mark Matthews, Kennesaw
  • Willie Oswalt, Lake City
  • Judy Johnson, Lawrenceville
  • Johnny Crist, Lilburn
  • Robert Price, Locust Grove
  • Gail Notti (mayor pro tem/council member at large), McDonough
  • Bucky Johnson, Norcross
  • Jere Wood, Roswell
  • Steve Edwards, Sugar Hill
  • Eric Dial, Tyrone
  • Vince Williams, Union City
The group is expected to arrive at the capitol just before noon.

Good thing the street sweeper has FINALLY made it to 14th today - not sure they will have the bike lane cleared of all that debris/salt/pebbles from the snowstorm. Those of us who use it have been calling for weeks to get it cleaned up.
