Bike to Work Day 2014

Friday, May 16th was National Bike to Work Day, and Atlantans all over the city ditched their cars and rode to work. Commuters stopped by several Energizer Stations across the city for refreshments and t-shirts from Fallen Arrows.

Midtown Alliance hosted a Midtown Energizer Station, and Intown Bikes was on hand to provide quick bike tuneups. Central Atlanta Progress hosted the Downtown Energizer Station at Woodruff Park with Atlanta BeltLine Bicycles providing bike checkups. Decatur Active Living hosted an Energizer Station at the Decatur Recreation Center with Nuun Hydration and Java Monkey. Bike Emory created an Energizer Station for Emory area commuters as well. 

In addition to the t-shirts, snacks, and goodies, there were a dozen "Bike Trains" led by experienced commuters all over the city! Bike Trains make commuting by bike safe and social by creating a route with stops along the way where anyone can join the train and ride with the group.

Some Atlantans even biked to work with Thomas Dimitroff, the Atlanta Falcons GM. Two rides with the Falcons kicked off in Buckhead -- a 40-mile ride to the Falcons’ training facility in Flowery Branch and a shorter ride to the Georgia Dome.

Even Atlanta City Council Member Andre Dickens left his car at home and rode from his Underwood Hills home to Georgia Tech and City Hall.
