Georgia Bikes announces annual Bike-Walk-Live Summit in Decatur October 3-5

Georgia Bikes’ annual conference, the Georgia Bike-Walk-Live Summit, returns to the metro area this fall. Coming to Decatur October 3-5, the Bike-Walk-Live Summit brings together all types of road and trail users and practitioners for informative educational sessions and new opportunities to work together to make Georgia’s roads, paths, and trails as safe and accessible as possible.

The Georgia Bike-Walk-Live Summit folds in the Georgia Outdoor Recreation and Trails Summit in 2024. This year represents the first official summit partnership between Georgia Bikes and the Georgia Outdoor Recreation Coalition.

“Trust for Public Land and the Georgia Outdoor Recreation Coalition are excited to integrate the Trail Summit into the Bike-Walk-Live Summit,” said George Dusenbury, Vice President of the Southern Region and the Georgia State Director at Trust for Public Land. “Pooling resources with our long-time partner Georgia Bikes will result in a more robust Summit and an even better experience for participants.”

As always, this year’s summit will offer a variety of learning opportunities, from informative plenary sessions to engaging and active mobile workshops, that highlight and improve on what makes Georgia bikeable, walkable, and livable, from complete streets and greenways to trails for walking, biking, rolling, and paddling.

“Georgia Bikes is thrilled to host this year’s Bike-Walk-Live Summit in downtown Decatur,” said Georgia Bikes’ Executive Director John Devine, AICP, said. “The Georgia Bike-Walk-Live Summit provides traffic engineers, professional planners, and active transportation activists and enthusiasts with an opportunity to learn best practices for their communities and celebrate everything that makes Georgia bikeable, walkable, and liveable.”
