2020 Georgia Walks Summit

Out of an abundance of caution and recent recommendations around COVID-19, PEDS has made the difficult decision to postpone the summit until Oct. 22-23.

The Georgia Walks Summit is an annual statewide gathering of transportation and public health professionals, elected officials and community advocates committed to making our streets and communities great places to walk.

Annual event at the State Capitol informs lawmakers about issues important to bicyclists

Our mission is to improve bicycling conditions and promote bicycling throughout Georgia, a significant task in a state as large as ours. To accomplish our mission, we partner with and support bicycle advocacy organizations around the state as well as our statewide partner on pedestrian issues, PEDS. We also serve as your voice at the State Capitol, ensuring that lawmakers are aware of the issues that affect people who ride bikes in Georgia.

These two efforts came together earlier this month when we hosted the annual Biking and Walking Breakfast for legislators. We were joined at the Capitol by biking. walking, and rolling advocates from around the state, who engaged with elected officials to discuss how they can help make Georgia safer for people who bike, walk, and roll. Read all about this year’s Biking and Walking Breakfast and the legislation we are tracking for you this year here: Bike-Friendly Agenda meets legislature.
