    Atlanta road cycling

    I'm gonna be in Atlanta this weekend. From Google map, I think I'm near Vinings.
    I really dislike driving to a ride, so are there any good routes near that area? Also, how's the traffic there? Should I avoid riding at certain time of the day?
    Thanks all.

    I use to ride some in the area when visiting for work, I just tried to stay off the main roads as much as possible. I never had any issues with drivers there. Stay off any road named Peachtree.
