  1. Very similar to the Rico Starr Loop, the Cedar Grove Loop is twice as long, offering more of the serene, picturesque country atmosphere. Due to the length, it's recommended for intermediate to advanced cyclists; however, if you're a novice and have some time to kill, this could be a great option for you as well! Be sure to pack a lot of water for this long haul. This is also a great opportunity to explore the quaint little community of Serenbe, which can easily become an all-day affair. Be sure to check out Peachtree Bikes while you're there!
