Project Summary: Helping make four city neighborhoods more livable with Bike Macon, a group that will meet monthly to coordinate and organize quarterly activities and interventions to engage and connect residents.

Bike Macon

Bike Macon is a group that will meet monthly to coordinate quarterly interventions to make four neighborhoods more livable. We will connect neighbors across East, West and Downtown Macon by using fun and creativity to help make residents more comfortable with walking and biking around town. After coordinating four events, the group will transform into Macon’s bicycle coalition, representing a diversity of community members, leaders and organizations committed to making Macon more bikeable, walkable and connected through advocacy and education.
