Midtown Alliance to weigh in on protected bike lanes on Peachtree Street

By Guest Columnist BEN FOSTER, membership and campaigns manager for the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition

You may know Atlanta as the “City in a Forest,” but to NiAya El Jamah and many others who bike in the city, Atlanta might as well be called the “City of 100 Hills.” That’s one reason why the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition is working to connect the city’s ridgelines (Peachtree Street) and rail lines (Lee Street and DeKalb Avenue) with protected bike lanes to make it easier and safer to bike.
