Friday May 22: Motivation to Bike or Walk

Let’s talk about how to get motivated to bike or walk. Our car is there conveniently getting us to and fro. What can we do to motivate getting on the bike once a week for an adventure, or walk to pick up dinner, biking to your friends house or walking just to get fresh air? Let’s talk over coffee about leaving the car keys at home and instead biking or walking.

Friday May 29: Topic To Be Announced

Eighth Annual Matt’s Moon River Cruise

The Eighth Annual Matt’s Moon River Cruise, presented by the Law Office of Joseph J. Steffen, will be held virtually May 21-26 — from wherever you are.

The event is named in memory of Matt Kohler, who was hit from behind by a driver on July 26, 2012 while riding his bike on U.S. Highway 80 in Bloomingdale.

On Friday, May 22, we will post a variety of routes ranging from 4-25 miles for all to enjoy in Savannah. These rides do not need to be completed on Friday — rather, they are a suggestion of routes to take at your leisure. Participants are encouraged to post photos on social media, tagging @BikeWalkSav, #MMRC8, #BikeWalkSAV, #BikesUnite. Want to share your route from outside Savannah? Email us at info@bikewalksavannah.org.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Friendly Driver Webinar

This webinar will delve into the laws pertaining to people biking and walking and how the design of our streets makes them safer for all users. Participants who take a short quiz at the end of the webinar will receive a certificate of participation.

My Bike Macon Photo Series

The “My Bike Macon project” is an ongoing series of portraits and profiles of Maconites who use a bicycle to get around for more than just recreation. These photos highlight people who bike to get to work or school, or bike to run errands, or bike to improve their health. Together, these images and stories begin to form a portrait of Macon as an emerging bicycling city. This project is launched by Bike Walk Macon and photographer Dsto Moore to help celebrate Bike Walk Month, but it will continue to highlight different photographers and bicycle commuters every month.
