[ARCHIVED] Join in for Bike Month 2021

Bike

May 1 kicks off National Bike Month. The DeKalb County cities (Stone Mountain, Tucker, Clarkston, Avondale Estates and Decatur) along the Stone Mountain PATH Trail have organized a series of events, educational programs, commuting events, and helmet promotion to encourage riders to get out and to go for a ride. The PATH provides bikers easy access to these cities downtown, businesses, neighborhoods, and parks.

The DeKalb cities will host a Bike Month Kick-off on Saturday, May 1, 2021, 10 am at Clarkston City Hall Annex, 1055 Rowland Street, Clarkson, GA. The DeKalb County cities will provide a sneak peak of the programs and events planned throughout the month. Aztec Bike Shop will bring its mobile unit to the event to repair bicycles. There will be prizes and giveaways. Covid-19 precautions and guidelines will be adhered to throughout the event, including wearing masks.

These bicycling activities and attractions have great potential to have a positive impact on DeKalb County’s economy and tourism industry and to stimulate economic development by making the state attractive to businesses and citizens who enjoy the outdoors and healthy lifestyles.


Upcoming events: 

  • May 27 - Ride to Stone Mountain and back along the PATH at 9 a.m., meet up behind City Hall with Mayor Jonathan Elmore and Mayor Pro Tem Brian Fisher
  • May 30 - Ride to Stone Mountain and back along the PATH at 9 a.m., meet up behind City Hall with Mayor Jonathan Elmore

Do you have a bike you no longer use gathering dust in your garage? Give it a new life by donating it to Bearings Bike Works! Bearings Bike Works invites kids to earn a bike of their own while developing the skills necessary to successfully transition into adulthood and the workforce. Community bike donations play a major role in Bearings programming. Not only are all of the bikes earned by students donated by community members, but the refurbishment of donated bikes also provides job training and learning opportunities for teens and young adults working at Bearings.  

In partnership with City of Clarkston's Bike Month, City of Avondale Estates is hosting a Bike Drive benefiting Bearings Bike Works on Friday, May 28 from 12 PM -3 PM and Saturday, May 29 from 10 AM - 1 PM in the parking lot behind Edwin Jarvis & Finders Keepers (entrance at 4 Lake St. Avondale Estates, GA 30002). Bikes can be in new or used conditions and donors will provided with donation receipt for tax deductions. Questions? Contact Sara Hempen at shempen@avondaleestates.org
