Good Urbanism Bike Tour
with Civil Bikes at the Georgia ConservancyEVENT ENDED
On Saturday, April 27, Civil Bikes and The Georgia Conservancy are partnering to host a 3-hour bike tour through Atlanta, visiting key neighborhoods and historic sites, such as Sweet Auburn, South Downtown, Vine City, West End, and Summerhill.
Along the way, we’ll tell the untold stories of Atlanta’s history and examine the influences that have shaped the city’s current design, including redlining, urban renewal, and gentrification.
Using the Georgia Conservancy’s “10 Lessons for Designing Cities” as foundation to understand the built environment, we will explore principles of Good Urbanism through the lens of spatial and social justice, and discuss how we can better shape an Atlanta that is more just and sustainable for all.
This tour is for those who are both new to Atlanta and those who have lived here all their lives. Join us for discussion and sightseeing!
