The Atlanta Beltline Eastside Trail got a taste of the holidays on Wednesday. Around 50 cyclists gathered at Atlanta Beltline Bicycle before heading out on the town for a 10-14 mile ride. Elves, santas, ugly sweaters and more rode out from the bike shop making, a path up to Edgewood before hitting Centennial Olympic Park, the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and a few other stops. This is the first year that the ride, which originated in Tucker, made a debut in the metro area.
