Bike Macon aims to improve bicycling in “Soul of the South”

Following a Cherry Blossom Festival bike parade with Georgia Bikes and Chantelle Rytter of the Great Atlanta Bicycle Parade, Rachel Hollar of Macon, GA decided it was long past time for one of the state’s largest cities to develop a grassroots bicycle advocacy organization. Two months of organizing later, Rachel has assembled a team of enthusiastic advocates, known as Bike Macon, who recently met for the first time at a downtown Macon craft beer bar to discuss events, advocacy, infrastructure, and educational programs to improve bicyclist safety.

Well done, Rachel, and keep up the fantastic work and energy!
