During this same time, there were 118 deaths related to bicycle accidents in Georgia.
Atlanta Bicycle Statistics
To understand the popularity of bicycle riding in Atlanta, we have provided some interesting bicycle statistics when it comes to Atlanta cycling. These statistics will show that, although measures have been made to make the city of Atlanta safer for bicycle riders, Atlanta lacks the proper number of riding opportunities. The lack of bike lanes forces bike riders to take to the road, competing for space with automobiles.
- 45: Miles of bike lanes in the city of Atlanta.
