    Bike Family

     

    The application for these program dates is closed and families have been notified of their acceptance.  The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition is seeking ways to have more programs like this in the future so stay tuned.

    Program dates: July 13, July 27, and August 3  

    Overview

    Family: a group of people who genuinely love, trust, care about, and look out for each other.

    The Bike Family program is a fun way for families to engage with other families while building the skills and confidence they need to bike safely together in their neighborhoods. The program is open to families who live in the City of Atlanta / Fulton County and includes access to bikes, helmets, and seven-hours of training for each family member. Participants who complete all hours of the training are eligible to take home bikes and helmets after the last session on August 3rd. Each family is also invited to join us in celebrating their accomplishment at the Atlanta Streets Alive kickoff parade on Sunday, September 29.
