Join us for our first commuter breakfast of 2013!

Hello commuters, the next ABC bike commuter breakfast is Thursday January 3rd (that's tomorrow), at Empire State South in Midtown (10th & Peachtree), and it's being extended to 9:30, yay! Here's the breakfast menu, with options from $2 to $. And if you just want coffee, I hear it's some of the best in town. And because I can sense you might ask, no, the coffee won't be free ;) For this breakfast, we decided to focus our time & energy on advocacy rather than discounts, so we're going to be having guests from the Midtown Alliance join us, and I'm crossing my fingers for BeltLine folks too. And hey, if you want to email or call your council member to invite them as well, please feel free to do so!

Here's the link, and here's the official blurb:
Two very exciting new items for our January Bike Commuter Breakfast: by popular demand and after months of requests, the breakfast is finally coming to Midtown! Also, we're extending it to 9:30am! (It will still start at 7am for all you early birds too)

Now, if you're one of the many bike commuters who commented on the thread we had about Midtown and/or live or work in the neighborhood, here's a special challenge for you: between now and then, try to convince a coworker or neighbor to ride with you one day - with the BeltLine Eastside Trail connecting Piedmont Park with Freedom Park or other PATH trails and tons of cool neighborhoods, bike commuting to & from Midtown has never been easier! Then, bring those friends to the bike commuter breakfast with you!

In exchange, here's what we're preparing for you: we've already had at least one staff member from the Midtown Alliance confirm their RSVP, and we're confident we'll also have folks from the Beltline join us as well to to chat about bike improvements in the area. Join us for breakfast ($2-9) and/or what I've heard is the best coffee in town, at Empire State South on 10th & Peachtree (SE corner, behind the Clothing Warehouse)

2008 Brownwood Park Bike Rally a smashing success
