Road Share: Georgia Bikes e-Newsletter

We might be in the dog days of the southern summer, but Georgians of all ages and abilities are still out there riding, smiling, and enjoying bike friendly trails and neighborhoods. We want all Georgians (and visitors!) to have safe, equitable access to bicycle-friendly streets and bridges that connect where they live, work, study, worship, and shop. We look forward to sharing best practices on Complete Streets, bike tourism, and more at our 7th annual Georgia Bike Summit this October on Jekyll Island. We hope to see you there! In the meantime, stay cool and ride on, Georgia!
Our Pocket Guides promote safe, lawful bicycling and urge motorists to respect and use caution around people on bikes. Request free copies for your business or organization!
Congratulations to GA's new Bicycle Friendly Business Awardees!
Georgia now has 7 designated Bicycle Friendly Communities,14 Bicycle Friendly Businesses, and 4 Bicycle Friendly Universities. 
Georgia's "Share the Road" specialty car tags directly support bicyclist safety and education programs across the state. Show your support for bicycling in Georgia with a Share the Road tag.

1,917 Georgians are participating in the National Bike Challenge, which runs through the end of September. There's still plenty of time to log rides, earn points, and win prizes. It's free, it's fun, it's for everyone!
With colleagues from ALTA Planning and GDOT, Georgia Bikes staff taught hundreds of city officials the basics of being a Bicycle Friendly Community at the recent Georgia Municipal Association convention in Savannah.
