BRAIN Dealer Tour, day 1: A peach of a day in rainy Atlanta

Published March 3, 2015

ATLANTA (BRAIN) — The 2015 Dealer Tour of Atlanta got underway Tuesday as BRAIN editors, tour sponsors and guests visited four bike shops and one running retailer  in Atlanta and Decatur, Ga.

The group started out in Atlanta's Buckhead district in a cool, steady rain. After a soaking first leg to Intown Bicycles, the day's weather slowly began improving and our socks were nearly dry by the end of the day.

Along the way we toured part of Atlanta's Beltline, a former rail corridor being slowly turned into a multi-use trail system that will circle the downtown core. Our ride guide was Cole Smith from the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. We rode a total of about 26 miles altogether.

Our shops for Tuesday: Intown Bicycles, Outback Bicycles, Decatur Bikes, Big Peach Running Company, and Bicycle South. 

Watch for full coverage of the Dealer Tour in BRAIN's April 1 edition. You can follow along this week on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (hashtag #braindealertour).

The three-day Dealer Tour continues Wednesday with a 29-mile route that will take us to five shops, in Smyrna, Midtown and Buckhead. Thursday we will get outside the I-285 Perimeter to visit retailers in Roswell and Atlanta.
