Atlanta Streets Alive: Westside
The streets of Atlanta will spring to life on Sunday, June 11th as a 3.8-mile stretch of street from Downtown to Underwood Hills is opened to people on foot and bike, and closed to motorized traffic (except for intersections where cars will be free to cross.)
Organized by the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, Atlanta Streets Alive will introduce in June a brand new route in uncharted territory for open streets via Marietta St. and Howell Mill Road, during the Atlanta Cycling Festival. Neighborhoods include Downtown, Georgia Tech, English Avenue, Marietta Street Artery, Home Park, Atlantic Station, Blandtown, Berkeley Park, and Underwood Hills. Grab your friends and family and get ready to activate the streets with human-powered amusement!
Question: What exactly do we do?
Answer: We close the streets to cars and open them to people!
Question: What should you do?
Answer: Bring your bicycle or your feet, and get ready to explore your community streets in a safer, healthier, more livable way.
Question: Why is the time different?
Answer: As you know, summer in ATL can get pretty toasty. We move the time back a couple hours so we aren't hosting ASA as close to the middle of the day.
Stay tuned for information about the Bicycle Parade which will start at 4pm near Downtown
