While thousands flock to the gyms to fulfill their New Years resolutions, we thought we'd bring some humor into it. Now, don't get us wrong---whatever gets you active is worth doing! If a gym provides the accountability or social interactions needed to get your heart rate up, then it's totally worth joining! On the other hand, if you're feeling guilty for not rushing to the cross-fit gym, or if you just despise indoor exercise (yes, I do too), then click the pictures and enjoy a little humor with us.Read more
Top 10 reasons you should be an ABC member in case you need some encouragement.
Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard, affectionately known as RDA, serves as a major corridor for schools, historic neighborhoods, and businesses in Southwest Atlanta. RDA is a large street with fast traffic and a lonely stretch of bike lane between Murphy Ave and I-85. The road, whether by bike or by car, is often perilous due to potholes, debris, and jagged train tracks.
RDA turns into Georgia Avenue and runs through seven amazing Atlanta neighborhoods: Westview, West End, Adair Park, Pittsburgh, Mechanicsville, Summerhill, and Grant Park.
The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition connects these neighborhoods at Atlanta Streets Alive. You can help make this a more livable, walkable, and bikeable corridor all year-round by supporting our campaign for bike lanes and regular maintenance on RDA and Georgia Avenue.
In addition to bike lanes on RDA and Georgia Avenue, we are advocating for:
- Resurfacing and repairing dangerous potholes on RDA
- Regularly maintaining this critical corridor by sweeping trash and debris
- Paving over the hazardous out-of-use train tracks
