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.
Cobb County Commissioner Helen Goreham will hold a Town Hall on Thursday, November 21st from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Senior Wellness Center, 1150 Powder Springs St., Marietta.
This would make an excellent opportunity to discuss Bicycle Connectivity to the proposed new Braves Stadium site.
Cobb DOT posted a doc on “Transportation Opportunities” that does not specify bicycle accommodations and is available at the following link:

The Cobb County Parks and Recreation Department has asked us to share with you the information in the attached flyer. During the construction period there will be no passage through the construction zone as bridges will be closed and no detours will be created. Please be safe and obey all constructions signs forbidding access to these areas as they are closed. Starting at Florence Road or further out on the trail to avoid the areas closed for bridge repairs will be your best option if you wish to get in a ride of any length.
It seems as if over 400 signatures (462 right now) on our petition isn’t enough.
They are repaving Johnson Ferry now. If you can spare 5 minutes, please call the county commission office TODAY & ask for the lanes to be re-striped to 11-ft at: (770) 528-3300.
Would you like your voices heard to the County Commissioners? Would you like the County to start incorporating safe bicycle infrastructure – by default? Would you like to see 3-ft safe bicycle shoulders on Johnson Ferry?
Then please attend tomorrow (Tuesday) night’s Board of Commissioners meeting, come early & rush down to be one of the SIX to sign up for Public Comments and let your voice be heard.

Petition to Restripe lanes to 11-ft on Johnson Ferry, creating safer options for people who ride bikes.
During the repaving project Johnson Ferry Road, we're asking Cobb DOT to please create a safer option for bicyclists by restriping travel lane widths to 11-ft from Roswell Road to Lower Roswell Road, creating a “bikeable” shoulder, nearly 3-feet wide.
Please go to the following link & sign the on-line petition.
