GA Rides to the Capitol Tuesday, March 27th

Join us for GA Rides to the Capitol on Tuesday, March 27th. The ride from Decatur will depart from the East Lake MARTA Station at approximately 10:45 am.

During the seventh annual Georgia Rides to the Capitol event, cyclists will embark on rides to the state Capitol in order to raise support for improved conditions for cycling, including the development of regional systems of both on-road bicycling facilities and multi-use-trails.

The Metro Atlanta Mayors Association (MAMA), Georgia Bikes!, and other event sponsors will host over 1,000 cyclists from the metro Atlanta region. Rides will depart from Decatur and Roswell led respectively by Mayor Bill Floyd and Mayor Jere Wood as well as other mayors and public officials from the region.

We are riding to raise support for the development of a regional-scale bicycle network of both on-road facilities and multi-use-trails, as well as cycling connections to major transit facilities, activity centers, and schools.

MAMA also intends to raise awareness of the benefits of bicycling as an important form of transportation; a beneficial economic development and tourism tool; an excellent way to maintain health and fitness; and a great sport and family activity.
