BikeAthens has been passionately promoting its mission of informing the community about bicycle and alternative transportation options since 1992. With unrelenting dedication, BikeAthens has carried out its goals through advocacy and, most impressively, community service.

In a larger warehouse unit next door, ready-to-be refurbished bikes of all shapes and sizes covered the concrete floor awaiting the day they'll be pedaled through the welcoming streets of Athens once again.
Oh, what's that? You don't have a bike? Even better! You'll get plenty of help making the perfect purchase from the experts at Sunshine Cyles, Ben's Bikes, or the Hub Bikes. Or help support BikeAthens by buying one of their refurbished bikes, with proceeds funding further repairs and workshop costs, at Earth Fare on Saturday, June 18, from 2-4 p.m.
Maintaining safety is an important part of being a bike friendly city, so BikeAthens in conjunction with the League of American Bicyclists will host Cycling Course: Traffic 101. Come refine your techniques and knowledge of the road in this two-part class Friday, June 17 from 6:30-9 p.m., and Saturday, June 18 from 9-1 p.m. For more information on these events, visit their website here.
