June 9th Atlanta Streets Alive

Streets Alive takes us cross-city! Sunday, June 9th, 2019 2:00PM – 8:00PM Go from Howell Mill Rd to Decatur by bike on the open street! While a mere nine miles, even in a motorized vehicle, it’s a daunting haul that feels disconnected. Atlanta STREETS ALIVE and the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition want to replace that feeling with an unforgettable open streets experience. That’s why, on Sunday, June 9, they’ll combine the Eastside and Westside routes into one delightfully cohesive Atlanta Streets Alive event – Cross-City. The City of Decatur will launch its first open streets by adding West Howard Avenue to the mix, bringing the newest addition to the Atlanta Streets Alive lineup to almost 10 miles. You’ll be able to roll or walk all the way from Underwood Hills to Decatur! The fun kicks off with a Parade where you can join in the official opening of the street followed by a parade of the route. Parade lineup is at 1:30 pm for a 2:00 pm launch. FREE bike decorations will be available while supplies last! Atlanta Streets Alive is FREE and fun for all ages. Bring your friends and family, and share in the experience of enjoying our city streets as public space! RSVP via Facebook below:
