Around the country, communities celebrate bike commuters with National Bike to Work Day Friday, May 17th. For many of you, that's every day! Why not invite a co-worker to ride in with you, or just go for a lunchtime ride?
While you're at it, stop by an Energizer Station in downtown Decatur or Atlanta for snacks and good company. Next Friday, May 17th, the City of Decatur will be outside the Recreation Center (231 Sycamore Street) from 7-10 am with coffee, pastries, and snack bars. Central Atlanta Progress will set up at Woodruff Park from 7:30-9 am with snacks. If you work at or near the CDC or Emory, check out the attached doc for a list of bike trains (rides with friends make for fun commutes!)
It turns out some prominent Atlantans love to bike commute when they get a chance too! You're invited to join Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff on his commute from Buckhead to the Georgia Dome this Bike to Work Day. Let's Rise up & Bike to Work with Thomas May 17! There may even be a few of these fabulous retro jerseys for sale.
The suggested donation of $30 gets you a one-year membership with your Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, and supports bike advocacy, education, safety, and community-building events like Atlanta Streets Alive! Riders will meet at 7 AM at the Publix shopping center (2365 Peachtree Rd NE) and roll out of the shop at 7:30 AM, arriving at the Dome around 8:30 AM. The Atlanta Falcons will provide SAG (Support And Gear), drinks, and snacks for riders. Local bike shops will be on hand for last minute adjustments.
[There's been a mix-up on the start location due to there being 2 Publix on Peachtree St in Buckhead. The larger group is at the "peach" (same start as last year) - 2900 Peachtree St NW. That group will stop by the other Publix (at Peachtree Battle) - 2365 Peachtree St on their way down to the Dome. Sorry for the confusion!]
