The eight-mile round-trip Let's Ride! event, which starts at 8 a.m. from , 1530 Woodbine Ave. SE, will take cyclists through the Edgewood, Kirkwood and East Lake neighborhoods.
The three communities are part of Archibong's District 5.
The cycling promotion is part of Watson's "Living Smarter Atlanta!" program. The Morningside resident's four-pronged initiative targets:
- Atlanta’s Youth - learning to be smarter through healthy eating, active lifestyles and literacy initiatives.
- Green Living - working with “green movement” leaders to educate Atlantans on the resources and services available for an environmentally sustainable city.
- Healthy Communities - advocating for more green spaces, bike lanes, walking trails and debris-free neighborhoods that support healthy lifestyle options in the city.
- Sustainable Revenue Streams - seeking and supporting environmental conservation opportunities that could double as viable revenue streams for Atlanta city government’s optimum functioning.
The ride is open to everyone of all experience levels and you may register here.
East Atlanta Patch caught up with Archibong to discuss the ride and bike safety.
