20 years of Atlanta's "Voice for Better Biking"

Atlanta, GA--  (submitted by Atlanta Bicycle Coalition)

2011 marks our 20th anniversary as "Your Voice for Better Biking." For two decades, we've worked to shift the bicycling landscape of our city to represent the growing number of everyday people who are using a bicycle for transportation, fitness, and/or recreation.

We're still a long way from where we want to be, but with the help of countless members, volunteers, staff, and partners, we continue to pave the way to a bike-friendly Atlanta.

Over the years we've had our wins (bikes on MARTA, bike parking during and after the 1996 Olympics, the Connect Atlanta Plan, Atlanta Streets Alive) and our losses (traffic calming projects that replaced formerly bikable space with curb extensions, most notably).
