Atlanta Bicycle Coalition invites residents to take short by-text survey to win prizes —

Take a short survey by texting the name of the neighborhood to 678-647-7176.

In just a few weeks, Atlanta’s first bike-share system will debut downtown, with 100 bikes at 10 stations, growing to 500 bikes by end of year.
Atlantans are invited to share their opinions about the neighborhoods where they would like to see new locations.
Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, City of Atlanta and CycleHop are calling on all Atlantans to take a short survey via text:
For the first month, Atlanta Bicycle Coalition will randomly select one survey participant each week to receive a $50 gift card.

One lucky survey participant will win a grand prize: a brand new kid’s bike!
