Just Curious: What is Bike Walk Macon?

MACON, Ga. — The nonprofit, Bike Walk Macon, is the leading organization in Macon to help people have more access to biking and walking resources, as well as developing policies to help people who can’t drive or prefer walking and biking around town.

“We are leading the movement in Macon-Bibb County to make our streets more walkable and bikeable, both for transportation and for recreation for everybody in Macon-Bibb County,” said executive director Rachel Hollar.

The organization provides many resources for education, advocacy work and free community events to help others discover the benefits of biking and walking in Macon.

“We host a lot of events that are free and open to people of all ages, all backgrounds, all writing levels, that invite people to come out and just get comfortable biking and walking on our streets,” Hollar said.

The organization hosts two big events called Open Streets Macon and Macon Bike Party.
