We are on our way!!! Cyclist contribute in so many ways to our communities. Atlanta metro was already on the bandwagon with local organizations such as The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition and The Southern Bicycle League and now with the added incentive of ‘PeopleForBikes‘ we can forge ahead, really make some progress, connect all the dots from north to south and east to west. I would like to personally congratulate and thank Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed who stands firm with cycling Atlanta and is very much committed to getting Atlanta to the top ten cities for cycling by the year 2016. (several videos follow)
With that kind of support we are well on the way to be a leader in the cycling world, in the new real world. A place that will be inviting to not just locals but will also attract new blood, inspired souls from all over the country to our communities to experience first hand what living in a forward thinking Atlanta Metro area is all about.
It will encourage greener commuting, getting folks of all stripes out and about experiencing up close and personal everything our great metropolitan area has to offer.
Think Atlanta Beltline, Silver Comet Trail, The Stone Mountain Trail/Path Foundation, Georgia Bikes… and for links to many existing routes and paths Trail Links by Rails to Trails Conservancy It is time, the time is now. So, get up, get moving, get out there and enjoy the ride!
