Georgia advocacy organizations working to connect people with donated bikes during pandemic

In Georgia, bicycles are essential transportation for many who need to get around during the coronavirus outbreak. This might include traveling to essential jobs, running crucial errands, or participating in mutual aid for vulnerable people who cannot leave their homes.

Bike Walk Macon is partnering with Re-Cycle Macon to connect Maconites who have an extra, ready-to-ride bicycle to Maconites who need one through Bike Match Macon. The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition has rolled out Bike Match Atlanta

Bike Walk Savannah is taking a slightly different approach. Throughout the year its New Standard Cycles team works with area non-profits and service agencies to assist their clients in finding transportation. During the current crisis they will be temporarily working directly with individuals to provide free bicycles.

Live elsewhere in the state and need a bike to reach important destinations? Or have one to donate? We’ve got you covered. Georgia Bikes launched Bike Match Georgia today!

Thank you to New York City’s Transportation Alternatives for sharing their Bike Match program model with us.
