Building The Movement For Bike Month
Third Place in Diversity / Building an Inclusive Movement
People Powered Movement Photo Contest
While a subscription to Momentum Magazine is mine for the third place honor, it took a sharp-eyed Heels On Wheels rider to spot the local tweet published in the May issue. @HoundstoothRoad sang the praises of Thomas Yang's bicycle art and tantalizes those of us who wonder just what is taking shape behind the brown paper in the windows of number 316 Church Street.
The arrival of a stylish bike bike emporium in Decatur is but one of many much anticipated events this May. Ride to Café Campesino in the Auburn Avenue Curb Market Thursday morning for the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition's monthly commuter breakfast sponsored by Central Atlanta Progress.
The ABC's annual BeltLine Bicycle Tour returns Saturday at 9am, leaving from D.H. Stanton Park in Peoplestown. Ride a segment or go for the complete loop at paces either slow or fast. Please follow this link to register.
The second Friday is May 11th and time again for the ABC's Mobile Social. All are welcome and none will be left behind on these explorations of Atlanta. Riders gather in Woodruff Park at 6pm and finish at a neighborhood pub.
BikeDecatur is hosting a leisurely ten mile ride around their city on May 12. Join them at the Decatur Farmer's Market for the 10:30am departure. Hint: arrive early for free chain lubrication and air.
Cyclofemme is a nationwide celebration of women cyclists on Sunday, May 13. With the BeltLine ride taking their usual first Saturday, Heels On Wheels riders invite you to join them in a special edition of their monthly jaunt up Peachtree Street. Meet them in Woodruff Park at 6pm.
Atlanta Streets Alive opens Virginia-Highland and parts of Inman Park and the Old Fourth Ward to all sorts of merriment for the afternoon of Sunday, May 20th. Dress to impress and roll with AM 1690 when the Great Atlanta Bicycle Parade lines up at 2pm on the corner of North and Highland.
