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.
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.

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.
