There are now more bike racks* in Downtown than ever before! This week, CAP/ADID installed a total of 23 bike racks in 8 different locations around town.
Grab your bicycle and get riding. Visit one of the following locations to check out the new racks:
-Atlanta Daily World building (Condessa Coffee and Arden's Garden)
-Central Atlanta Progress office (84 Walton St.)
-Jimmy John's on Broad St.
-Corner of Edgewood and Park Place
The racks are another reason why it's great to be on two wheels and to Be Downtown. With cycle tracks under construction, bicycle infrastructure and alternative transportation options in Downtown continue to grow.
*CAP/ADID purchased the installed racks through the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition's partnership with Dero, which enables some proceeds of the purchase to support advocacy efforts in the Atlanta area.

Downtown Atlanta is the place to BE for Memorial Day weekend.
Just take Travel Channels word for it.
Wonderful restaurants, fabulous shopping, hundreds of arts and culture venues, world-class museums ... there’s more to do in Atlanta than many realize. Home to the world’s largest aquarium, the new World of Coca-Cola, dozens of beautiful parks and the High Museum of Art, the hometown of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most attractive cities in the region.
The Atlanta Jazz Festival is always a popular event this Memorial Day weekend, drawing crowds to Piedmont Park for free performances from top names in the jazz circuit. There are also great outdoor activities -- and a laser show -- at Stone Mountain Park, which will appeal to the whole family.
STAY: The 127-room Ellis Hotel in downtown Atlanta is located in a historic building that's thoroughly stylish and contemporary. Its charming lobby has fresh flowers and a cool light fixture installment, the restaurant serves delicious farm-to-table cuisine, and the rooms -- though on the smaller side -- are sophisticated.
