The Atlanta Cycling Festival is gearing up next week.

Described as “a week of cycling magic,” it runs from Saturday, June 13th to Saturday, June 20th with bicycle rides, classes, and “bicycle parties,” according to the website.

There are more than 40 events, including a doughnut ride and a featured bar ride. There is also a Tour de Beltline, which explores Atlanta’s Beltline Project and a Living Walls Bicycle Tour. The individual events specify rider levels as well, including whether there is a family friendly option. And if you don’t have a bike, you can rent one for the event.

The festival organizers say there are four festival goals:

1. For the new and curious rider, we want you to fall in love with cycling and the city.
2. For the seasoned and the convinced rider, we want to connect you to each other and the city.
3. For participating bike orgs/nonprofits, connect you to 1 and 2 above.
4. For local businesses (cycling and non-cycling), connect you to 1,2, and 3 above.

The website says the festival is in its second year. Ride on!
