The City unveiled plans for the Webb Bridge project at a well attended meeting October 15, 2019. We are really pleased that the City listened and was able to incorporate many suggestions from the community (including cyclists). The design will be posted soon on the City’s website, but we wanted to share some of the key elements:

– 8′ sidewalks and 4′ bike lanes
– access to the Greenway for cyclists traveling West
– a roundabout at Webb Bridge Way

Along with the Alpha-Loop and North Point District, as well as numerous other projects, walking and biking will keep getting more connected, safer, and better in Alpharetta!

There are a lot of exciting road and path improvements underway and in planning. Here are a few updates from our recent meetings with the City:

It is with an abundance of gratitude and outpouring of appreciation that Bike Alpharetta and the Roswell-Alpharetta Mountain Bike Organization are able to close the Emil Walcek Memorial Fund as of April 2, 2019. In just 22 days, more than 200 friends and colleagues of our cycling friend Emil contributed $9,110 to a special GoFundMe Campaign.

He was an avid cyclist, a volunteer, a member of Bike Alpharetta – RAMBO – Bike Roswell, graphic artist, business owner and proud grandfather. After battling for four months, Emil succumbed from injuries sustained in a car-bicycle crash (he was on the bicycle).

More than 200 people attended his Memorial Service on March 16, and 55-plus people turned out at the Big Creek Greenway for a memorial bike ride! Thank you everyone. We will miss our friend so much – #RideForEmil
