Ligaya Figueras, the new food and dining editor at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, has taken a two-wheeled approach to exploring the city's culinary gems since she arrived a few weeks ago from St. Louis, Mo.

And for a newcomer, she sure has learned quickly about how to pair two of life's greatest pleasures. (Who knew there was a Buford Highway Bikes and Bites tour?) There's even a "Spokes and Folks" Beltline bike ride that includes beer and barbecue at Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall at 5 p.m. Sunday.
