What’s the best way to make a new friend? If you ask the team behind Bicycle Ride Across Georgia, they’ll tell you it’s to bike along one of their routes, then grab a drink and jam to live music at one of their event’s after parties. We chatted with the men and women behind this cycling venture to learn why people across Georgia are grabbing their helmets and heading for the open road.

Whether he's training a celebrity
for an upcoming role in an action film or helping a client
lose weight, Joey Dillon is poised to challenge and motivate. It's a role the personal trainer first took on in high school, when he would assist his fellow football players in reaching their fitness goals. Now the owner of STATUS Athletic Club travels to his company's locations in LA, Miami, New York, and Atlanta to oversee the various programs he's established and personally train clients.
Clients will find plenty to do to jump-start their fitness routines or maintain their physiques. They can simultaneously strengthen muscles and self-defense skills during Brazilian jujitsu and muay thai kickboxing classes; fortify their cores and postures in Pilates sessions; and trick themselves into working out during upbeat Zumba classes. They can also meet with nutritionists to create meal plans that will help them shed unwanted pounds—or relinquish stress and muscle aches during massages and chiropractic appointments.

Skate Escape is a convenient bike and skate shop located at Piedmont Park’s 12th Street entrance. An Atlanta institution for decades, this casual, laid back shop feels like it was decorated by tween-aged skater boys, but it carries an impressive stock of products and a knowledgeable staff.
Whether you’re in the market to buy a new bike or to rent skates, bikes, or gear for a day or two, the staff at Skate Escape will get you kitted out with whatever you need. If you’re new to riding or just have a casual interest, renting the basics offers you a chance to try different products before you commit to a purchase. There is limited parking at the shop, but get there early to score a spot in the lot or on the street, especially on Saturday mornings when the greenmarket is held in the park.
