Bike Route Connects Chattanooga to Atlanta

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) – A newly established bike route described as the first of its kind in Georgia connects Atlanta to Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The Marietta Daily Journal reports that U.S. Bike Route 21 consists of about 161 miles of existing trails and bike lanes.

The trail begins in downtown Atlanta at the Five Points MARTA Station, travels along Peachtree Street, then links up with the Silver Comet Trail northwest of the city.

The bike route travels through Cobb and Paulding counties on the Silver Comet Trail before turning north in Cedartown in Polk County and uses two-lane country roads to connect to Chattanooga.

Officials say U.S. Bike Route 21 will eventually connect to Cleveland, Ohio, as it continues to be developed.
