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:
