Are you already an advocate or professional working toward a better world, or just curious to learn more at this pivotal time in our society? Come experience economic, environmental, and social sustainability where the rubber hits the road! Take the “Sustainability-in-Action” Bike Tour from Bicycle Tours of Atlanta (a 10-year-old, woman-owned company whose bicycle tours are the #1 outdoor activity on Trip Advisor with more than 600 five-star reviews, and where I am lucky to serve as a Happiness Officer).
On this 3-hour, 10-mile immersion, you’ll see why Atlanta, a member of the global 100 Resilient Cities coalition, is increasingly earning accolades for green building, trees and greenspace, business vitality, water conservation, land use, innovation, bike friendliness, and more. With plenty of hands-on opportunity to experience a city embracing the defining challenges of our times (in ways that will surprise and delight you — I will even share with you my secret public fruit trees!), expect to have more fun than you thought possible regarding such an important and timely topic. We are all about a joy-based journey, and these issues are my personal and professional passions. Yet we don’t sugar-coat it — we also talk honestly about what could be better so you’ll leave with a realistic hands-on understanding of possibilities that may inspire you to make where you live or work more resilient as well.
Dates are already being booked, especially with Earth Day* upon us. Email company owner Robyn Elliott for available dates, prices, and other details. Comfortable bikes and clean helmets are included (and there is one electric bike available, if hilly Atlanta is your barrier to participation). We are excited to share with you an optimistic success story about a new way forward that’s already happening.
(If you are interested in this unique and timely tour but not yet comfortable back on bike, consider taking one of my classes.)
*This year, Earth Day celebrates its 49th anniversary, which means this entire next year is its 50th! We are offering this tour all year to coincide with this monumental global celebration and call-to-action.
