For us, Bike to Work Day is more than just about commuting to work, so that’s why we're calling it, Bike There Day. We hope you get out and bike on Friday, May 18. Want to host an Energizer Station to encourage and celebrate people riding a bike for transportation? CLIF Bar will help you get started!
Request an Energizer Station supply kit BY WED, MAY 2 to get your hands on some CLIF snacks and other useful goodies that are sure to delight even a veteran bike commuter. [link in profile]

Let's dedicate a day to show some extra support to people who are getting around Atlanta by bike! #bikethere #optoutoftraffic #feedyouradventure #clifbar #bikeatl #atl #atlanta

Last Sunday, Atlanta Streets Alive transformed DeKalb Ave and Decatur St into a street that people want to use for more than just driving and sitting behind a car making a left. 74,000 people (a weeks worth of car traffic) attended Streets Alive and envisioned a safer street. As it stands now, this corridor is hostile to people—no matter what form of transportation you use 🚗🚲🚶‍♂️🚶‍♀️. It also feels like a dividing line that separates communities. Making DeKalb Ave and Decatur St safer for people in the @cityofatlantaga will not only help save lives, but connect communities .

We’ve been dreaming of this route for a while and it was all that and more!!! We hope you had fun, but more importantly we hope you were able to re-envision what #dekalbave could be. It is a vital street that connects 12 neighborhoods and it has the chance to become a safer and more equitable street. In TEN DAYS there will be a very important public meeting and if you like what you saw today then join us to voice your concerns. We need the community’s input and support because this project has stalled!
