If you want to make a difference on bicycle transportation issues in the state of Georgia, a big chance comes up next weekend.
It’s the second “Georgia Rides to the Capitol” event, with the mayors of three suburban cities (Decatur, Marietta, and Roswell) joining Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin on rides to the state capitol in Atlanta. Distances range from 5 miles (Decatur) to 21 miles (Roswell) one-way.
The rides are timed to arrive at the Capitol around 11:40 a.m. on Tuesday, March 6. Police will escort the rides inbound but not outbound.
