Founded in 1991, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition is Atlanta’s voice for better biking. We envision a city where bicycling is a safe and convenient form of everyday transportation, where people of all ages and communities have access to a connected network of safe bikeways. We see bicycling as a tool for community building, personal and public health, and transportation equity, and seek to promote bicycling for transportation in particular. Our programs include Atlanta Streets Alive, an open streets initiative, safety and Earn a Bike workshops, and advocacy campaigns for protected bikeways, safer streets, an equitable bike share system, and policies that support bicycling.
