    2020 Blinkie Awards & Member Party

    Since 2008, we've gathered each year to celebrate the people, projects, and policies making Atlanta better by bike. In 2020, as we expand our work to include other forms of transportation that are good for the city, please join us for this community shindig at the Trolley Barn - how appropriate! 

    This party is FREE for current members! To become a member, join via atlantabike.org/join-donate

    Get ready to get down with us for a night of food, drinks, music, awards, and fun! To nominate someone for a Blinkie Award, click here. You'll meet other Atlanta Bicycle Coalition members -- new and long-standing, celebrate our success and growth during 2019. 

    GETTING THERE #OptOutofTraffic The Trolley Barn is located in Inman Park, off Edgewood Avenue.

    • Bike parking: Complimentary ABC Bike Valet available near the entrance of The Trolley Barn. Use the bike lane and remember to stop! 
    • MARTA: Take MARTA to the Inman Park station. Keep in mind the Reynoldstown side of this station is closed, but happily this year the Inman Park side is open! 
    • Car parking: A few on-street parking spaces are available. But we encourage you to bike, walk, scoot, or ride MARTA if possible!

  • signed DeKalb Avenue 2018-12-20 22:47:53 -0500

    DeKalb Avenue is fast, dangerous, and out of control. In 2015, Atlanta voters overwhelming approved the Renew Atlanta Infrastructure Bond to update and improve our streets, including a Complete Street for DeKalb Avenue.

    Yet in 2019, after three years of public meetings, funding for the Complete Street on DeKalb Avenue was cut, leaving only resurfacing and replacing the reversible lane with a center turn lane and design for a future Complete Street in the budget. It's not clear where funding would come from to actually build it. 

    The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, along with community members and neighborhoods along DeKalb, is continuing the fight for a DeKalb that serves more than high-speed traffic speeding through our communities. DeKalb Ave connects 11 neighborhoods -- all but 1 wrote letters of support for a Complete Street. 

    We are calling for any project, including repaving, that affects this key, flat corridor to make the road safer -- for everyone. The resurfacing project should include a buffer between people walking on the sidewalk and cars, and a place for people to bike. 

    The City of Atlanta retained Arcadis as the design firm for the striping design for the first phase of resurfacing on this project. They are pursuing short-term safety improvements that can be accomplished within the resurfacing project, with an eye toward long-term improvements that can be built in a future second phase.

    The design team intends to begin meeting again with various local stakeholders in January and February 2020 to be followed by a public meeting. It's not yet clear when the design will be finalized and when the resurfacing project will go to construction.

    Atlanta Bicycle Coalition remains an advocate for both long and short term solution to the dangerous conditions on DeKalb Avenue. The improvements should address the glaring gap in bike facilities stretching from the Stone Mountain PATH trail to the Inman Park-Reynoldstown MARTA station.
