Georgia Rides to the Capitol

UPDATE: Here's AJC's coverage of the rally. And more photos.

Huge turnout on a perfect day! Many thanks to all the cyclists who came out to support better bicycle facilities and safety in Georgia- hopefully a bigger Athens contingent can go next year!

Also, some epic news for BikeAthens. As part of a group of advocacy organizations across the state, we have been awarded a sizable grant from the Governor's Office of Highway Safety to promote road sharing and safe cycling practices. Stay tuned for details! Woooot!!
