Atlanta Streets Alive 

The rain on Sunday afternoon did not stop the large crowd of pedestrians that came out to enjoy Atlanta Streets Alive. The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition partnered with Mayor Kasim Reed to shut down 2.7 miles of Peachtree Street from 2-6 p.m. as people walked, skateboarded, Hula-Hooped, ran, danced, and enjoyed the city from a different perspective.
