City of Atlanta hosts 1st Bicycle Expo!
City of Atlanta hosts 1st Bicycle Expo!

ATLANTA -- Bicycle commuters often look at me sideways for not riding my bicycle to work because I live closeby.  And I must confess, I'd save a lot of money, time and get some exercise to boot if I rode my new 10-speed to work.  During the month of October, the city of Atlanta is hosting its first Cycle Expo at City Hall in the atrium.

Make plans to join the Department of Planning and Community Development, Office of Sustainability and several of our transportation partners for a fun and informative event.

The city of Atlanta has seen a significant increase in the number of bicycle commuters and is committed to adding new bike lanes and routes where feasible.

Over the next three years, the city of Atlanta is poised to construct 34 miles of high-quality bicycle facilities

These projects include:

  • New bicycle lanes along Auburn Avenue and Edgewood Avenue linking the Old Fourth Ward to Georgia State University
  • Georgia‚Äôs first protected one-way cycle track along Juniper Street connecting Piedmont Park to downtown Atlanta
  • Buffered bicycle lanes along Ponce de Leon Ave providing a direct link from the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail and Ponce City Market to the heart of Midtown
  • Two-way cycle track between Centennial Olympic Park and Freedom Park
  • Bicycle lanes and cycle track connection between Brownwood Park and Grant Park
  • Direct connection between the Atlanta University Center, Castleberry Hill and downtown Atlanta
  • Over nine miles of shared-use path connections in northeast, northwest, southeast and southwest Atlanta connecting various business districts, parks and schools.

Without the strong partnership between the City of Atlanta, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc., Atlanta Regional Commission, Georgia Department of Transportation, our Community Improvement Districts, the PATH Foundation and private funding partners none of these planned projects would be possible.

Attend the City of Atlanta 2012 Bicycle Expo on Friday, October 12th from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the city hall atrium.  Visit www.AtlantaGa.gov and click on the community calendar for more details.
