Part 2 of our November Charity Bikes donation is to Indian Creek Elementary. The program by Mr. Adam will use the bikes to get kids riding. And this is a great opportunity. The school has about 1000 kids. 90% of the students walk to school because they live within 1 mile of the school. Thanks to Mr. Adam for partnering with SoPo to get more kids on bikes.
If there was ever a need for a road diet, it would be North Indian Creek Drive. This would be a great area to implement a Safe Routes to School program. North Indian Creek Drive between Church St and Memorial Dr is home to Georgia Piedmont Technical College, Clarkston HS, Indian Creek Elementary, Atlanta School for the Deaf, the Clarkston Public Library, and the Clarkston Community Center. Mr. Adam told me it was a sight to see when the kids from the area schools get out for classes. Added safety will be great for all. Even 1 accident is too many.
There is a lot of potential for bikes. Grant it, Friday was a cold day and there was one bike on the rack.
Cool fact about Indian Creek Elementary, the school hosts kids from 40 countries representing 50 different languages.
