That we're learning to like bikes 

Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, the city's largest bike advocacy group, has long worked behind the scenes toward making the A an increasingly bike-friendly town. Since 1991, it's fostered a burgeoning two-wheeled community by raising public awareness, organizing annual events, and even teaching classes on effective bicycling. Share the Road, one of the organization's key legislative initiatives, has aimed to make bicyclists more visible to drivers. In 2010, the group helped found the enormously popular Atlanta Streets Alive. 2012 has been a banner year for the organization. Led by Executive Director Rebecca Serna, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition has helped establish the state's new "Complete Streets" policy as well as fund Cycle Atlanta, a new bicycling app. Despite T-SPLOST's failure, which would've considerably helped Atlanta Bicycle Coalition's efforts, the organization has steered Atlanta's bicycle-friendly ways in the right direction. And even if you're not a bicyclist, you can be grateful for these advocates, as they've made the city's streets much clearer and less congested.
