ABOUT THE 2015 EVENT

With perfect temperatures and blue skies, the 10th anniversary Ride to the Capitol was a resounding success.

Well over 1,000 Georgians rode to the state Capitol from dozens of metro Atlanta locations to rally for improved bicycling conditions in the state. A number of mayors and elected officials, from Alpharetta, Kennesaw, Roswell, Lilburn and many other cities, led the crowd into the brand new Liberty Plaza, where they received refreshments from Bike MS and heard about the benefits of bicycling.

Governor Nathan Deal, a top GDOT traffic engineer, and Harris Blackwood, Director of the Governor's Office of Highway Safety were among the day's speakers, all of whom recognized that bicycling is both an enjoyable form of healthy recreation and a sensible form of transportation for Georgia's cities.

Below are photos from the event. Many thanks to Bike MS, the cities of Decatur, Roswell, and Sandy Springs, the Georgia Municipal Association, the Metro Atlanta Mayors Association, and all the event sponsors, volunteers, and participants for making the 10th anniversary the best Ride To The Capitol yet!
