Have you heard the great news? Atlanta Streets Alive won CL Best of ATL – “Best Free Thing To Do” We are happy for them and ready to have another great Atlanta Streets Alive this weekend.
Atlanta Street Alive is a program from the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. It is inspired by open streets projects all over the world. Atlanta Streets Alive closes the streets to cars and opens them for the people. By temporarily closing the roads to cars Atlanta Streets Alive is able to create a great event that encourages people to explore their community streets in a safer, healthier and more livable way. Atlanta Streets Alive has grown from only two events each year in 2010 to four events in 2016. Check out some of the pictures from previous Atlanta’s Streets Alive events.

Relay Bike Share is growing and in the process of expanding to 500 bikes. With fall rolling in, the days will be perfect for Relayin’ around town.
Timberley Jones, the Marketing and Community Outreach Manager will be on the scene with fun games, bike demos, promo codes and answering any questions you may have about the Relay Bike Share Program.
Event Details: Atlanta Streets Alive
When – Sunday, September 25, 2016
Time: 2 – 6pm
Location: Highland Ave, & Boulevard Ave
We had a blast at the last Atlanta Streets Alive. Relay Bike Share was 3 days old and the City of Atlanta welcomed us with open arms. Come by our event table to see what else we have stored in our bike baskets. Look for the Relay Bike Share tent at the Highland bakery Bridge Area.
This Atlanta Streets Alive will connect four Atlanta eastside neighborhoods via North Highland, Highland Ave, and Boulevard. Neighborhoods include Virginia-Highland, Atkins Park, Poncey-Highland, Inman Park, and Old Fourth Ward.
For your convenience we will have virtual hubs set up at:
- Inman Middle School (near the start of the event)
- Inman Park MARTA Station
- Historic O4W Park/Ponce City Market
Relay Bikes use smart bike technology which allows us to set up virtual hubs for special events around Atlanta. The smart bike technology gives pass-holders the convenience of locking their Relay Bike outside of a Relay Bike Share hub without being charged a $2 out of hub fee. We want you to have fun, grab a Relay and not worry about fees during the Atlanta Streets Alive this weekend.
There is also a Bike Parade that leaves from the corner of Virginia Ave & North Highland, to the end of the route (2.7 miles) in Old Fourth Ward. Ride through and explore five different Atlanta neighborhoods and get a glimpse of all the activity along the way. RSVP and Get parade details here. We would love to see a Relay rolling through.
