VeloCity Atlanta Ride for Grady 

In the face of a global pandemic, Grady stands strong. But the fight is not over and we need you more than ever. While we cannot physically be together, we do hope you will join us to ride, on Nov. 7, 2020 in support of Grady Hospital.

Why Grady?

At Grady, lifesaving never stops. Every hour of the day, patients receive the best medical care from 3,000 physicians who represent 80 medical specialties and are recognized as some of the nation’s top physicians. Since Grady opened 128 years ago, it has provided the same quality of care for rich and poor, black and white. Grady creates an open, safe space for all who enter to receive the care they need. Grady is known as one of the nation’s best trauma centers. Today, it is managing the dynamic impact of COVID-19 while still healing disease, caring for burns and correcting injuries – all while delivering compassionate care safely and keeping Atlanta healthy.

We hope you will join us.

Every mile and every dollar matters!

PaceDay 2020 Unchained

After much consideration regarding the ongoing surge of Coronavirus cases in Georgia, and the safety for Paceline participants, Paceline leadership has made the difficult decision to take this year’s annual event virtual on October 24th.

Funding for cancer research has been negatively impacted by the pandemic, while the need is ever-present. While we will not be gathering for a physical event this year, you can still make an impact on critical cancer research at the Georgia Cancer Center. We have created a virtual experience, so we can all still ride and move together while fundraising to end cancer. We are excited to share with you PaceDay 2020 Unchained Virtual Challenge.

Cities Managing Speed for Safety: Learning from Seattle & Minneapolis Webinar

Reducing speed to save lives and prevent serious injuries is a cornerstone of Vision Zero. Safe speeds are especially important to help protect the most vulnerable on the road, and the difference of just 5 miles an hour can literally mean life or death in a crash. Cities around the globe are increasingly recognizing both the urgency of managing speeds and the capability of doing so. Strategies that seemed daunting for too long are becoming more commonplace in U.S. cities. Join us to learn what’s happening most recently in two Vision Zero communities — Seattle & Minneapolis — who are centering speed management in their safety work.
