There’ll be four “Hack” sessions over the next week, all aimed at people who are rethinking driving in the wake of the interstate shutdown and its ripple effects. They’re BYOB (bring your own bike) affairs, starting out with some quick drills in Piedmont Park. That will be followed by a group ride through neighborhoods and to destinations particularly affected by Atlanta’s suddenly rewritten traffic patterns.
Led by an experienced “car-free” rider, the hack sessions will familiarize participants with different types of bike lanes and other aspects of smart and safe cycling on city streets. The goal: “to lift your urban bike riding confidence,” ABC says.
