Thanks for visiting our Website. This foundation, in partnership with the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition as their Cobb Bicycle User Group (BUG), was established to leverage their network and organization into a local advocacy effort in Cobb County. As we continue to increase membership, we will be asking people to step forward and participate. We're brainstorming, developing our agenda and setting the stage for the next steps.

As part of the Cobb Comprehensive Transportation Plan, they've heard from lots of people. But, not so much from bike advocates. If you think Cobb County needs more on-road facilities for bicycle commuting and recreation, we need to hear from you: The cycling community - the more the merrier! Please make your comments, suggestions or ask questions at www.cobbinmotion.com
The Marietta Ride of Silence will be on Wednesday, May 21, 2014. We will again start at 191 E. Lawrence Street, Marietta, GA 30060. Please plan to assemble at 6:30 for the ride start at 7:00 p.m.
The ride is only 9 miles long and will be done in complete silence as we ride in honor of those struck while riding their bicycles and in memory of those who died from being struck.
The recent disaster in New Orleans with the Kennesaw residents Andrew and Frank reminds us that, unfortunately, we still have too many reasons for doing this ride.
The PTA is planning a bike rodeo for kids at Eastside and Indian Hills Community on Saturday, April 12, 2014, from 2-4 p.m.

Tables will also be available for groups to set up and presentinformation for encouraging riding, such as SORBA, Bike Cobb, Connect the Comet, etc.
