    Give your city cycling confidence a boost with this instructional group ride.

    What to expect

    We will gather for a few quick drills then hit the city streets for a 45-minute ride of three to four gentle miles. Once rolling, we’ll

    • Take it slow, stay together, and practice our skills in a safe and supportive manner
    • Experience Atlanta’s existing bicycle facilities, like two-directional protected and/or single-directional bike lanes and sharrows, and
    • Learn to ride safely on streets without bike lanes by exercising our legal right to “take the lane”
    • Experience how one can commute combining MARTA and bicycling.  Thanks to an in-kind donation from MARTA, all participants will receive a Breeze card loaded with two trips.
    How to prepare

    Please bring a bicycle in good repair that fits you and a helmet.   Lime e-bikes will be on hand for a free one-time use and Relay Bike Share is nearby for rent if you do not have a bicycle available to you. We strongly recommend you also bring

    • Water and sunscreen
    • Sneakers or other appropriate closed-toed shoes
    • Comfortable, appropriate clothing for being outside and active
    • A friend or three!

    Please arrive promptly so all participants can benefit from the full time allotted for this instructional experience.

    We urgently need Atlanta's leaders to adopt and implement equitable mobility recommendations.

    Transportation is an essential part of everyone’s life. When it doesn’t work well, we miss out on job opportunities, have limited access to housing options, are exposed to unsafe streets or polluted air, or have our freedom of movement restricted due to the lack of reasonable options. When transportation is good, it is essential — even enjoyable, because it just works. We might notice kids biking to school, experience the ease of crossing the street safely, or relax while listening to music as we look out the window from a bus in a dedicated lane.

    Yet as the pandemic continues, people face greater risks and barriers while in transit. Despite fewer miles driven, more people died on Georgia roads in 2020, likely due to an increase in speeding. And, people riding public transportation experienced dramatic cutbacks to bus routes, leading to longer walks to the nearest bus stop, often on streets that lack sidewalks.


    This policy agenda is about creating viable transportation options that are safe, easy, accessible, and enjoyable for everyone.

    Equitable transportation policies and projects provide physical and social mobility, as well as access to living-wage jobs, affordable housing, healthcare, and quality education. Affordable mobility options give people economic and social opportunities, especially in communities racially profiled for disinvestment that continue to suffer disproportionately from traffic fatalities. Green options reduce the transportation sector’s impact on climate change, an existential threat to communities.

    Working with our partners and stakeholders, we created three policy recommendation categories: Safety, Transit and Affordability, and Funding. In addition, we have a policy agenda for the Atlanta Board of Education. Please join us in sharing these recommendations with our leaders as we work to create a more equitable city through mobility.
