Just this summer, ten bike stations sprouted in downtown. A few virtual hubs were planted throughout the city as well. The stations are equipped with comfortable cruising bikes with three gears, lights, and a basket to carry your work stuff or your groceries (not your significant other). We at ABC, with support from PICH, have some free classes running over the next five weeks. The first one is Saturday, August 27th from 10:00 – 12:00. We are gathering at Hardy Ivy Park. Be sure to rsvp here!
I’m Stephen, the recently installed education coordinator at Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. I’ve been car-free and city biking for decades here and in Austin, San Francisco, and DC. It’s totally exciting to be part of the biking revolution going on here. And, I’m pumped that you early Bike Share adopters are coming out for Bike Share 101 and participating in making the community safer for all of us who regularly or episodically exert our clean, human-powered, energy to get from point A to point B.
In the classes led by Timberly Jones of Relay Bike Share and I, you will learn how Bike Share works, pick up a few tips on urban riding, and venture off on an easy-going cruise around Downtown and O4W. We’ll stop a few times to check out other bike stations, chat about some little-known Atlanta history, group-ride as a team, and enjoy some snacks and discussion at Woodruff Park before the short ride back to Hardy Ivy Park.
