The Spring 2019 BFC review process is now officially underway. To help the League of  American Bicyclists gain a better understanding of local bicyclists’ experiences and perceptions of bicycling in Athens, the City would appreciate your help in providing feedback. Please consider submitting information using the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/adv_BFC_SP19League of American Bicyclists logo
