New bicycle lanes could boost cycling around city

Six recently completed projects bring new bike lanes to several neighborhoods and could encourage more people to cycle instead of drive along key corridors in the City of Atlanta. As part of a vision to implement the city’s complete streets policy, City officials are moving forward with goals to make roadways safe for all modes of transportation, including walking, driving and cycling. 
 
The Departments of Planning and Community Development and Public Works are more than halfway through completing 11 fully funded high-priority bicycle projects as part of the City’s comprehensive bicycle plan called Cycle Atlanta Phase 1.0. From alternating bike lanes, to installing new, green bike boxes, to reducing the number of travel lanes on some roadways, these projects are designed to make cycling in Atlanta easier and safer.

Registration is now open for the 4th Annual BRAD – Bicycle Ride Around Dunwoody, on Saturday, April 21st during Lemonade Days festival at Brook Run Park. 3 ride options for the whole family (3.5 mile, 8 mile and 29/37 mile). Early registration discount through 4/16.

Proceeds go towards: a) Restoring the Donaldson Chestnut Farm House; b) Additional Bike Racks in our community; and c) Supporting Georgia Bikes, our statewide bicycle advocacy organization.

Moving in the Right Direction

We all want to see better ways to ride bikes and walk around town, but how can we go about making these changes and getting the funding to support it? I learned a bit more about this recently when I was asked to participate in Advocacy Advance Action 2020 bike/ped workshop as a member and supporter of the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. Eager to understand how I can be a part of making these projects happen, I attended the workshop along with a diverse group of individuals from advocacy groups, government agencies and even neighborhood groups all interested in working together toward the same goal – improving our communities’ ability to offer safe and engaging spaces to walk and ride bikes.

The beauty of the bike

20 years ago, the Atlanta Bicycle Campaign was founded by a group of passionate activists to advocate on behalf of bicyclists and promote cycling, especially the kind that gets people places. Today, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition is the go-to resource for people who want to start biking, for planners and city officials seeking cyclists' perspective on projects and needs, and the loudest voice for a bicycle-friendly Atlanta. 

On Friday, November 4 from 7-11 pm, we'll celebrate these accomplishments, in which our members and supporters have played a tremendous role! Please join us for fun, food, drink, and dance. 5 Seasons Westside  will serve up delicious local food and craft brews, a DJ will lend a soulful vibe, Collin Chappelle is showcasing his Atlanta Bicycle Photography project, we'll loop a photographical history of ABC (submit any interesting ABC or Atlanta bike historical tidbits here), local designers will add shine with a velo chic fashion show including ABC members, and ABC supporters are contributing fabulous items for a silent auction

We'll see you November 4th at 5 Seasons Westside!

You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you still won't get what you need either

Advocacy Intern Johann Weber weighs in on the newest TIA project draft list with a mixture of project and financial breakdown.  The results, while they may quell transit advocates' concerns, are sure to disappoint those who had high hopes for improved bike/ped conditions in the region.
