The streets of Atlanta will spring to life on Sunday, April 8th as a 4.4-mile stretch of street from Downtown to Lake Claire 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, this is our first Atlanta Streets Alive (ASA) of the year! Join us as we introduce a brand new route in uncharted territory for open streets via Dekalb Ave and Decatur St. This new route will connect 11 Atlanta neighborhoods which include: Downtown, Sweet Auburn, Old Fourth Ward, Cabbagetown, Inman Park, Little Five Points, Reynoldstown, Candler Park, Edgewood, Lake Claire, and Kirkwood. 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.
Stay tuned for information about the Bicycle Parade which will start at 1:30pm at the 5 points intersection in Downtown.
