Another Atlanta Streets Alive has come and gone. It’s still amazing to see all the people on the street enjoying themselves with all that ASA, local businesses, and participants offer. This is a great event for Atlanta.
Given that you’re reading a post on your Friendly Neighborhood Bike Co-op’s blog, the answer to that question is probably a yes, but this isn’t your average bike-to-work challenge. Racking up the miles isn’t the main objective. Instead, you’re recruiting an army. All you have to do is ride ten minutes or more between Sept. 28 and Oct. 19, and recruit as many of your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers to do the same. And they can ride anywhere, it doesn’t have to be commuting to work. Ride to happy hour. Ride to the grocery store and back. Got a friend who isn’t comfortable riding in traffic? Introduce him to the BeltLine. Coworker completely fed up with her commute? Take her for a lap on the gravel loop at Cochran Shoals park. Know somebody that wants to start riding but doesn’t want to shell out for a new ride? Send them our way. We’ll get them set up.
