Scenic Byways in Georgia
Author Last Post

I have not done as much riding this year as I would in a typical year. So, I’ve developed a target to ride all the 15 DOT designated Scenic Byways in Georgia before April 1st next year (I’m anticipating that there will be a Grand Tour of Georgia challenge organized by Team Strange starting in April next year that will be on my ride agenda then). The byways are detailed on the DOT’s website http://www.dot.ga.gov/DS/Travel/Scenic


I completed the 29-mile South Fulton Byway loop today. Weather was dry and sunny and warm enough to ride without stacks of layers or heated gear. Starting in Brookhaven there’s no way to avoid a lot of local traffic on a Saturday, whether Interstate or surface roads, but heading out on FIB traffic did disappear and the potential attractive character of this part of South Fulton started to show itself once FIB became Cascade Palmetto Hwy south of Campbelton Rd. Then it was just over four miles to the start of the byway which I followed in a counterclockwise direction. The route proved to be through a nice mix of forested rolling hills and pastures that encouraged a very relaxed pace. I took the opportunity to meet up with a friend, who lives near the route, over a cup of coffee at the Blue Eyed Daisy Bake Shop on Selborne Lane in Chattahoochee Hills at about half way around the byway.


Great little treasure of a route and “Daisy,” as I’m told the local call the bake shop, is a charming café/bakery worth a detour at any time.


One down 14 to go.


Here’s a snapshot of the byway route and its context:
