Come out, come out for a bigger, better Streets Alive in downtown Atlanta! This ciclovia-style event will designate several miles of city streets for the exclusive use of people, rather than cars. The route will be open to any form of non-motorized movement - walking, running, bicycling, cartwheeling, skateboarding, and so on.
There will be some booths along the way, offering bicycle repairs or information about bike-share programs, and some food and entertainment. But most of the people who come will just be there to experience Atlanta without cars. It's hard to describe what that feels like - you just have to come and see for yourself. The pictures from the May event offer a hint.
If you think this is a great idea, get involved. Check out the volunteer calendar on the home page - there is an orientation session tonight and some sign-making sessions. You can also pick up some posters from the Atlanta Bicycle Campaign office and post them around work and your usual hangouts. There are also graphics that you can use on your blog, Facebook page, and email signature.
