Kid-friendly Bike Ride at Big Creek Greenway Alpharetta and Fitness Walk in Forsyth

December 2009 Big Creek Greenway Events

Biking and walking events are scheduled on the Big Creek Greenway in the coming weeks.  It looks like they are both individually organized (nothing official).

Sunday December 6th, 2009

Someone over at oacs-atlanta.com is organizing a kid-friendly bike ride get together on Sunday December 6th at 11am.  They are meeting at the Starbucks on North Point Parkway (next to Barnes and Noble near Mansell Road) and riding from Mansell Road to the end of the Alpharetta Greenway north of the YMCA and back.  Sign up for the ride here if you are interested.

Wednesday December 9th, 2009

Sticks and Strides Fitness Walking Club is hosting a Big Creek Greenway fitness walk at the Forsyth County Bethelview Road entrance on December 9th.  You can discuss and find out more details about the walk at Meetup.com.

Happy Trailing!

  • Jeff The Big Creek Greenway is a great park resource for Forsyth. However, it looks like not nearly enough parking or Greenway access points are available. Sunday 02/20 the Bethelview trailhead was full and cars parked up and down the road on the shoulders of Bethelview. Also cars were parked on the shoulder where Castleberry intersects Hwy 9. I think it is just a matter of time before we have an accident with people trying to create parking spaces. As spring arrives this situation will just get worse. I live in Vickery and have tried riding my bike the 1-mile to where the Greenway intersects Majors road. Unfortunately the cars do not abide by the 35 mph speed limit and I did not feel safe. There is lots of parking at the Vickery Village. Do you know if anyone has looked at a walking/bike path from Vickery, down Majors Road to the Greenway? This one-mile stretch has a nice wide shoulder that would easily accommodate a walking/bike path. This seems to be a very cost effective way to add parking and access to the Greenway. Please let me know your thoughts, and whom you might suggest I contact about adding access to the Greenway from Vickery. Cheers Bruce Watson (Phone # Removed)
