Ongoing opportunities

Bike Friendly Neighborhoods. You'd like to see your community become more bikeable, right? With the funding in place to build bike projects, joining your neighborhood association might be the best way to help that happen!  Details at www.atlantabike.org/node/2363.

Connect the City. ABC is working on an initiative to build bicycle facilities on three major Atlanta corridors that happen to be both flat and important cross-town connectors - Peachtree Street, DeKalb Avenue, and Lee Street. Stay tuned for details and how to get involved. Call to action: sign the Peachtree petition here, Shop and Dine Peachtree and let businesses know you biked there by using social media (hashtag #bikepeachtree), or print and hand out these..

Online advocate Pay attention to news stories about bike projects and share your opinions in the comments section. Too often, only the complaints get heard. Let's make sure the compliments get passed along as well! Or send an email or call your local elected officials to thank them for supporting bikeways.
