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.

Here are two Saturday rides. No Sunday rides in the Vinings area.

9:00 am Atlanta Cycling - Beyond Six Flags (1NW)
Please join us for a 40, 50, or 62 mile ride on rural roads following an out and back painted route. Lunch following next door. Store located 1/2 mile north of Chattahoochee River at 4335 Cobb Pkwy, (Atlanta). For more information, email, or call 770-952-7731.

10:00 am Atlanta Cycling - Vinings Loop (1NW)
Join us for a 22 mile through Buckhead and Sandy Springs on a painted, low traffic route. Lunch following, next door. Store located 4335 Cobb Pkwy (Atlanta), 1/2 mile north of Chattahoochee River. For more information, email, or call 770-952-7731.

I think you'd have to drive to all the other rides in the NW part of town.

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.

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.
