82,300 Atlantans take part in Atlanta Streets Alive October 6

Incredible. 82,300 Atlantans took part in our Atlanta Streets Alive event Sunday! This kind of turnout shows widespread support for the city's goal of becoming a top ten U.S. city for cycling, not to mention a walkable, vibrant urban environment. 

Check out photos on Facebook and what Maria of the Saporta Report had to say about Atlanta's shift towards a more livable, active city. 

In case you're wondering, the official count of 82, 305 total participants during the four hour event is based on the participant count method outlined in pages 95-98 of this international ciclovia guide.
