Congratulations to Commissioner Fred Boykin for winning the first ever Fred Boykin Lifetime Achievement Award from the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. The award ceremony, “The Blinkies”, was held last Friday night at Trees Atlanta in Kirkwood.

Mr. Boykin said he was most proud of the Safe Routes to School Program in the City of Decatur, of which he was instrumental in getting  off the ground. He stated that hundreds of children in Decatur walk and/or bike to school every day. The Safe Routes to School program began its work in the City of Decatur in 2005 and today includes all elementary schools and Renfroe Middle School as well as St. Thomas More. Fred continues to serve on the SRTS committee.

Commissioner Boykin also helps to organize the annual Georgia Ride to the Capitol from Decatur’s East Lake MARTA where a large number of elected officials gather to ride to the Capitol.

Congratulations Commissioner Boykin!
