Atlanta Bicycle Coalition to celebrate 10 years of Atlanta Streets Alive with virtual bash

March 30, 2019

The coalition has been holding the event series, Atlanta Streets Alive, for a decade

For 10 years, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition has brought Atlantans together to roll, walk and gather on open streets throughout the city.

Now, instead of congregating in person, the organization will celebrate a decade of its Atlanta Streets Alive series with a virtual event.

On May 20, the virtual bash to commemorate Streets Alive turning 10 will include: information about the 2020 programming and future plans, messages from the founders and the unveiling of a commemorative T-Shirt, which will be available for purchase.

“Over the last decade, the demand for streets that let people move safely, easily, and sustainably has increased dramatically. We look forward to further championing safe and complete streets to create a more inclusive and thriving Atlanta,” Atlanta Bicycle Coalition executive director Rebecca Serna said in a statement.

A decade ago, Atlanta Streets Alive began as a pilot program on a one-mile stretch of Edgewood. In the 10 years since, the event series has attracted more than 1.5 million participants to its 29 events across the city.

“Since the very first route, Atlanta Streets Alive has provided first-hand experiences of what corridors designed for cars would be like if they were reclaimed for people,” Serna said.
