As a Biketober partner, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition is collaborating with Georgia Commute Options to encourage Atlanta's commuters to swap their cars for bikes during October as a way to reduce our city's carbon emissions and traffic congestion. The Atlanta Bike Challenge is designed to get you, your friends, family, and colleagues to experience the joys and benefits of riding a bike. It is a fun, free, and friendly competition packed with prizes and incentives, including the chance to win a free Edison Bike.
Atlanta Bicycle Coalition's mission is to transform Atlanta into a more livable, accessible city by making biking equitable, safe, and appealing. Through advocacy, education, and our signature program, Atlanta Streets Alive, we work to make Atlanta streets safe for all. We're excited to support your team and workplace in preparation for Biketober.
Here are a few easy ways you can participate in #Biketober:
