Description: Ready to open a bicycle business? The Atlanta Cycling Festival has teamed with Invest Atlanta, the City’s Economic Development Authority, to scout out some great new spots to start your bicycle business.

The tour is focused on downtown Atlanta and the surrounding neighborhoods of Castleberry Hill, West End, and English Avenue. Spaces for maintenance facilities, retail outlets, advocacy or technology startups, and bicycle manufacturing will be featured. The tour will start in Woodruff Park and feature the following destinations with potential for additional stops on the way:

* M. Rich Building (82 S. Peachtree St./115 MLK Jr. Drive) - Located in the heart of historic downtown, the M. Rich Center for Creative Arts, Media and Technology is a state-of-the-art facility that fosters the creation of new work for startup and leading creative entrepreneurs. Originally built as the M. Rich & Bros Co. building, its creative facelift uncovers the beauty of what was once one of Atlanta’s earliest examples of International Style Architecture. Spanning 110,000 square feet and bolstering exposed bricks, naturally finished hard wood floors and high windows, it mimics a New York style open floor plan that inspires and encouraging creative productivity. Emerging creatives and entrepreneurs at the M. Rich Building work and play within suites and collaborative spaces to uncover, develop, and create content and products.

* Castleberry Point (327 Nelson St.) – Located in the up and coming and bicycle-friendly neighborhood of Castleberry Park, Castleberry Point features 42,000 square feet of groundfloor retail and commercial space under 110 unique residential lofts. Be a part of the hottest arts community in the City and join creative retail tenants such as Smoke Ring BBQ, Zucot Gallery, and the Wine Shoe.

* The Metropolitan (675 Metropolitan Parkway) – Formerly a cotton warehouse constructed by Atlanta’s own, Asa Candler, the Metropolitan Business and Arts District has been transformed into a craftsmen community and center for commercial, performing, and visual arts. Join Atlanta’s most unique mix of makers, thinkers, and doers in almost a million square feet of flexible warehouse space to meet the needs of a full range of bicycle businesses.

* English Avenue Yards (794 Wheeler Street) – Craving space for your big ideas? English Avenue yards features flexible spaces and elective design so you can think and tinker, explore big new ideas, or refine your proven business model. English Avenue yards offers spaces flexible enough to house food manufacturers, t-shirt printers, fitness centers, and music studios to name a few.
We can't wait to show you the properties... and hopefully help start a bike business!

Don't Forget: Helmet, lots of water, bike lights, bike tube, sun screen, snack bar.
