Decatur Streets Alive cycling event to take place Sunday, June 9
This story has been updated.
This weekend, the city of Decatur will host its inaugural Decatur Streets Alive cycling event in partnership with Atlanta Streets Alive.
According to the Atlanta Streets Alive festival website, the open streets festivals aim to create an opportunity for people to explore the city in a “safer, healthier, more livable way” by closing off streets to cars and opening them up to cyclists and pedestrians.
On Sunday, June 9, one mile of West Howard Avenue will be closed to automobile traffic from North McDonough to the East Lake MARTA station and will directly connect to Atlanta Streets Alive and their nine-mile route to form a 10-mile long “paved park.” Decatur Streets Alive is free and open to the public.
Line up for the opening parade begins at 1:30 p.m. at West Howard and North McDonough Street. The parade begins at 2 p.m.
