BikeAthens Headquarters

It’s only been about 10 days since we sealed the deal to move the BRP shop and BikeAthens HQ into 1075 West Broad, but we’ve accomplished a ton of work in that time.  Our wonderful BRP volunteers disassembled the existing, dilapidated office, creating 0.85 tons of “garbage burritos.” A process that also uncovered a pair […]

The Many Benefits of a New Bike Plan

  In 1999, to some fanfare, Athens prepared to stripe the county’s first bike lanes (this almost 25 years after Athens first attempts at a comprehensive bikeway system).  Two years later, ACC approved a Bike Master Plan (BMP) with a 2020 planning horizon.  The BMP designated 16 routes that would create a web of connected […]
