    Bike There Day with CLIF Bar

    The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition has partnered with CLIF Bar to celebrate and encourage getting around our city by bicycle.

    Whether you're running errands for the first time or a veteran bike commuter, you'll get extra high-fives for riding on Friday, May 17! Each year, this day is traditionally celebrated as Bike to Work Day, but we want you to join us in making sure anyone who chooses a bicycle for transportation feels encouraged, comfortable and confident about moving around Atlanta by bike.

    Here are a few easy ways you can participate in #BikeThere Day 2019:

    1. Host an energizer station at your business, workplace, church, school or another location on the morning or afternoon of Friday, May 17. CLIF Bar supply kit reservations are closed: Reserve CLIF Bar snacks for your #BikeThere Day Energizer Station by Wednesday, May 1 to get started. ***YOU MUST BE ABLE TO PICK UP YOUR SUPPLY KIT MAY 8 - 16 DURING THE OPERATING HOURS OF THE PICK-UP LOCATION YOU SELECT.***
    2. RSVP via Facebook and invite your friends to join you at one of the energizer stations outfitted and sponsored by CLIF Bar #BikeThere Day Energizer Station in the morning to score CLIF snacks, your very own "I Biked There" sticker and some good cheer to fuel your ride. To find an energizer station or bike train check out this community-sourced map!
    3. Share the #BikeThere cheer on social media. Use the hashtag to tell us how you're getting around by bike, to encourage others to try it and support those who have decided to take a spin on two wheels.
    4. Schedule a City Cycling class or a Hack Your Commute Lunch-n-Learn for your organization (workplace, church, school, community organization, etc.) to help your crew prepare for Bike There Day with tips and skills for cycling in the city:

    City Cycling: Workplace Edition

    City Cycling: College Edition

    Hack Your Commute Lunch-n-Learn

    RSVP below for #BikeThere Day if you plan on riding somewhere on Friday, May 17! And, if you'd like a little guidance before you hop on a bike, sign up for one of our FREE bike skills and safety classes listed here too. We hope to see you pedaling the streets soon!
