Adair Park’s own Beltline Bike Shop is doing a fundraiser on November 5th, and they need your donations! They are doing, what else, but a 50 mile bike ride. Adair Park neighbors Joel Haffey and John Sherwood are joining owner Tim O’Mara and other friends of the Bike Shop in this ride to raise funds for the Bike Shop. This is a great opportunity to give back to the kids in our community and give them a sense of pride in their community.
